We’ve been watching this  brilliant talk by Frank Warren about his blog (postsecret.com) on TED. Warren talks about how the blog began and shares some amazing stories and secrets. He speaks about how revealing our secrets can bring us closer to one another and how the Post Secret community has spread and started projects of their own.
Our students have been debating the importance of sharing things about ourselves with people we trust and whether Post Secret is something they agree with. We’ve also been discussing why people feel comfortable sharing their secrets online.
What do you think? Why would someone share something with strangers that they wouldn’t tell their closest family or friends? Do you feel comfortable sharing your deepest, darkest secrets with people around you? If not, would you consider doing so with the world?
We love getting your responses! Comment and share!
