Re: Snapchat was how I found out I'm still innocent.
Schools have a very difficult time explaining things like this to kids. Remember, the adults who manage your life are the enemy. They're old, don't understand how today's world works. They're stupid, if they knew what they were talking about they wouldn't be teaching, etc...
The 'young adult' age bracket is so highly prized because kids that age are really beginning to assert their individuality. Because of this they're extremely susceptible to marketing. They haven't yet had enough experience to realize that they are being aggressively targeted. They truly think they're the first ones to figure this stuff out. If some brand/thing/fad 'speaks' to them it's because that brand/thing/fad understands them.
They'll look back and say 'god damn' I was stupid, and in most cases it won't matter, it's part of being a kid. One of the first steps in actually being an adult, not adult aged, but an actual adult is admitting you don't know shit. Most of these kids will get there, then one day they'll be 'old' and those stupid kids today are just throwing their lives away but they won't listen. Then they'll get a little older and just say fuck it, it doesn't matter. Then they'll have about 20 years to enjoy it :)
