Newsweek contributor James R. Ransom offers this advice for the new generation: “Make it as easy as possible to delete the video.
If it’s not a new video, don’t delete it.””
If you’re sending a message in an email, you want to make it as simple as possible so that it disappears, because it’s very important that you never delete anything.
Delete it and don’t lose it,” he says.
“I always think it’s best to be very careful when it comes to making sure that you’re not deleting things that are still on your hard drive, but if you do delete something, make sure it doesn’t disappear.”
According to Ransom, the only way to really ensure a video doesn’t vanish is to delete it yourself.
“It’s really up to you,” he suggests.
“If you just delete it and then it comes back, then you’ve already lost something.
If you want it to disappear, make it disappear.”
