Our own Tim Farrow spoke to students at Willingboro High School last week about the dangerous new world of Social Media and cell phone communications. Farrow, along with fellow Moorestown attorney Katherine Hartman, Esq. and the Honorable Karen Williams, United States Magistrate Judge, participated in this special “Law Month” program co-sponsored by the Burlington County Bar Association and Burlington County Superior Court. Farrow also participated as a panelist this month at Delran High School and Pemberton High School.
The program is designed to educate students about how they should balance their First Amendment right to free speech against the dangers inherent in the new extremely open and public forms of communication like social media and cell phones. Topics included the use of Facebook by employers to review job applicants, “sexting”, and use of social media and cell phone records in police investigations. “I am always more than happy to speak to students, and this is an especially important program for teens, for whom these forms of communication have become second-nature,” said Farrow. “They are constantly communicating with thousands of so-called friends with very little thought about the potential repercussions.”
