Emma Watson: Social Media Robs Teens of Innocence

Emma Watson successfully segued from the Harry Potter franchise to a respectable film career with movies like The Perks of Being a Wallflower and the upcoming Sofia Coppola drama The Bling Ring.

Watson fears today’s children won’t be able to transition gracefully into young adulthood thanks to the pervasive nature of social media.

I think it’s amazing how self-aware people are becoming as a result of constantly posting images on Facebook and Instagram.

‘They’re blissfully unaware their childhoods are being shortened. That period of time when you’re not self-conscious is sped up.
