What stuck with me most in this lecture is idea we’ve all heard before; the internet never forgets. What we post on the internet isn’t as temporary as you’d think, and the delete button isn’t as concrete as you’d hope.
As stupid or uninformed teenagers, we often post dumb or problematic things which we later regret. For some people, that idea extends further into adulthood. It’s inevitable that we grow and change, and in that, our opinions grow and change too, whether it be about something stupid or even about something offensive. However, the things we post on the internet will always stick with us, and I think that’s something important to accept. While of course it’s not ideal, it’s nothing we can change. When posting anything online, this is something I find really crucial to consider.
