Social media mishaps happen. How do we take them in stride?

Social media mishaps? These teens take them in stride. In one short, Mya’s world is turned upside down when a personal photo surfaces online. Whether she is ready or not, Mya is forced to challenge the identity she has come to know with the one she feels deep down. In another short, Insta is in the eye of the beholder—can an isolated tree find new life on Social? Who gets more likes, the nature expert or the commercial entrepreneur? In the last short, When Hannah arrives at school, she's nervous a classmate from middle school will not respect her privacy. She wonders if it’s time to tell new friends her truth before the narrative is no longer hers to tell.
