Read the article below. Then post a comment by answering at least 3 out of the 5 questions.
1. Do you think Millersville University was justified in disqualifying Stacy from earning her teaching degree because of her profile page? Why, or why not?
2. How would the situation be different if the context of the photo were taken into account? For instance: What if the caption of the photo was not “Drunken Pirate,” but “Happy Halloween” or “My friend forced me to wear this pirate hat”? What if a post accompanying the photo said that it had been taken at a child’s birthday party and Stacy was drinking punch?
3. What if Stacy’s friend Joe had posted the picture of Stacy without her knowing it, and tagged her with the “Drunken Pirate” caption? Does the fact that Joe posted the picture change the situation? Why or why not?
4. How can people’s reputations be affected by what is posted about them online? What impact could this have on their future?
5.What should you ask yourself before you post a photo, video, or other information about another person online?
