Dear Harbinger Staff,

From personal encounters, I can agree with the point that is struggling to be surfaced in the piece “Think before you post written by Lindsey Stevenson. Most often teens or any social media users want to stand out even if it means posting a photo similar to others. Throughout the last couple of years I have experienced the aggravating emotions that can take over as one views the same photo over and over, but in the end nobody is required to look. Social media is meant to allow people to freely express their views to attempt to avoid the criticism from world around them. Within this piece the stance is clear, however the way it is being portrayed comes off as slightly offensive. There are many ways to escape viewing a picture you do not agree should be posted. Simply unfollow or just do not look at it. I find it difficult to empathize with somebody voicing an opinion about a topic that is avoidable.

Sincerely,

Sophie Rubin

Class of 2017
