For me I know with MySpace and Facebook because a lot of my friends are adults on there I work with, or like older people I've worked with, I always feel like I have to maintain a very professional -- like I don't have like really -- I don't have any inappropriate pictures on either. And like I am very simple because I don't want to like -- yeah, I don't -- you don't want strangers to look at my profile and -- I don't know. I just want to give a very simple and accurate, like, presentation of who I am.... I personally am very like, you know, I'm very careful about what I put on MySpace and Facebook in like making sure that that's what -- that's who I feel I am.
