There is no denying that teens and adults alike are not just texting while driving, they are also checking their favorite social media apps. Ironically, social media is taking a proactive approach to put an ending to texting while driving.
Case in point: the#X campaign. This campaign is spreading like wildfire on social media; but some people simply do not know what it means. If you text “#X” to a friend before you get behind the wheel, they know that you are driving and therefore won’t text you. It is not an end to the text conversation altogether; it just pauses the conversation while you are driving. This campaign is geared toward teens who feel social pressure to text back immediately. Hopefully, the #X campaign allows teens to get to their destination safely.
