    Dad and Son Intervention | Social Media Documentary Series | Kill Your Content

And I’m like, “Perfect.” Something’s going to happen there, so I just threw him out there. We didn’t practice because I’m not really like a dad in the park trying to throw balls back and forth or whatever. That’s not the point. The point is I … I captured it all on video. Yes! Like that. Make…

    Online Privacy – right to be forgotten

    With the birth of the computer, and then the internet, the information age began. It started with excitement and great optimism about how the free flow of information would change the world. Social networks and search engines like Google, Facebook, and Twitter putting “in the moment” information at our finger tips.

So if they’re talking to other employees it’s concerted…
