Internet Safety Tips

These are some Internet safety tips to live by. Using the Internet is great, but unless you know how to use it safely, it can become a dangerous place. These tips are simple to follow, so if you use them, you have the power to do what you want to do without having to worry.

1. Don't post your personal information!
Social networking sites are awesome, but you do not want just anyone knowing where you live, where you go to school, or how old you are. People that you know will already know this information anyway, so there's no reason to post it.
2. Do not add people you have never met to your Friends list.
Anyone can take a picture from the Internet of an attractive teenager and say it is them. A good rule of thumb is to only become "friends" with people whom you have talked to in person and truly know.
3. Protect your pictures!
Use the highest security settings on social networking sites. Do you really want human traffickers and pedophiles across the world to see a picture of you in your swimsuit? Or at your high school? Or with your family on vacation? Or you dancing with your friends at that party? Posting pictures on your social networking profile is a great way to keep your friends updated with your life -- but you do not want to keep STRANGERS up-to-date with everything in your life!
4. Don't post anything that you wouldn't want your future boss to see!
If you have any embarrassing pictures, videos, or comments that don't show you in your best light, take them off! If you have any troubles, you can contact the team that manages the website for help. Of course the best way to avoid all that trouble is to not post anything inappropriate on the internet because you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube.
