NOW, SASHA GAVE ME INSTRUCTIONS ON SNAPCHAT. >> Jimmy: OH, REALLY. >> ONE NIGHT AT DINNER WE’RE SITTING THERE. AND I HAD READ THAT SNAPCHAT WASBECOMING REALLY POPULAR AMONG HER AGE COHORT. SO I SAID, TELL ME ABOUT SNAPCHAT. SO SHE STARTS EXPLAINING STUFF. THEN YOU CAN MAKE LITTLE FACES ON YOUR PICTURE, THIS AND THAT AND THE OTHER. AND AT THE END OF IT, MICHELLE AND I ARE SITTING THERE. I SAID, ISN’T THIS INTERESTING. I STARTED TALKING ABOUT THE IMPLICATIONS OF SOCIAL MEDIA, WHAT ALL THIS MEANS. COME TO FIND OUT SHE WAS RECORDING US THE WHOLE TIME AND THEN SENT TO HER FRIENDS AFTERWARDS, “THIS IS MY DAD LECTURING US ON THE MEANING OF SOCIAL MEDIA. “SHE TOOK A PICTURE OF HERSELF SORT OF LOOKING BORED. >> Jimmy: WOW. >> YOU KNOW. >> Jimmy: AS IF YOU DON’T HAVE ENOUGH SECURITY PROBLEMS RIGHT NOW. >> MICHELLE OF COURSE LOVED IT. MALIA THOUGHT IT WAS A RIOT. THEY DISTRIBUTED IT TO ALL THEIRFRIENDS. THIS IS WHAT I GO THROUGH DURINGDINNER. >> Jimmy: WOULD YOU TELL YOUNG PEOPLE THAT THEY SHOULD NEVER WRITE ANYTHING IN AN E-MAIL THATMIGHT POSSIBLY BE CONTROVERSIAL IN ANY WAY?>> IT’S INTERESTING. I HAVE E-MAIL, I DON’T HAVE TEXTING. BECAUSE MY PHONE FUNCTION IS DISABLED. I NOW HAVE AN iPHONE BUT IT IS LIKE THE PHONE YOU GIVE YOUR 2-YEAR-OLD. >> Jimmy: YEAH. >> THEY CAN PRESS THINGS BUT NOTHING ACTUALLY HAPPENS. >> Jimmy: RIGHT. >> SO MY PHONE HAS NO PHONE.

DO WE KNOW, DO WE HAVE ANY IDEA WHO DID THAT?>> WE DON’T HAVE ANY IDEA WHO DID THAT. BUT WHAT IS TRUE IS THAT WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. WE’RE ALL WIRED NOW.
