In the wake of high school student Phoebe Prince’s suicide, I have been thinking about the destructive side of Facebook, instant messaging, texting/cell phones, Twitter and other 7×24 social mediums. Prince was a 9th grader in South Hadley, Mass. who took her life after months of tormenting by classmates whose arrests this week have been big news.
What struck me is that there was no escape for Phoebe. Once, you could get harassed in school and take refuge at home. No more.
