(Newser) – James Franco went on LIVE with Kelly and Michael today and admitted it: Yes, he did indeed try to pick up on a 17-year-old tourist using Instagram. "I'm embarrassed," he admitted. "I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky. It's a way people meet each other today, but what I've learned, I guess just because I'm new to it, it's like, you don't know who's on the other end. You meet somebody in person and you get a feel for 'em, but you don't know who you're talking to, and so ... I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson." Click for more on the awkward incident.
