That sounds like a fascinating situation. I do think students today are more used to having their privacy compromised than we were at their age. For many of them, then, it's not such a big deal to be public. But in my Critical Thinking About New Media classes, I did see a sizable minority of students who were having second thoughts about their participation in the world of "oversharing". Certainly, quite a few of them were repulsed by the vision that The Circle presents, even in its early, semi-utopian pages. And a number of them had decided to opt out of social media altogether, getting rid of their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
