  • Pointers

1. Exercise the Golden Rule.

  • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!

  • If you wouldn’t speak to the person that way face to face, then don’t do it online.

2. Remember, everything you post online is public.

  • It doesn’t matter whether or not you delete the message or text.

  • Once it’s out, it’s traceable.

3. Don’t use all caps.

  • This means that you are shouting!

4. Speak kindly.

  • It may look like a screen in front of you, but there’s another person on the receiving end.

5. Don’t post things when you’re angry.

  • Take time to clear your head.

  • Refrain from saying something you’ll regret later.

6. Use different usernames and passwords.

  • If someone gets your password, they’ll have access to everything.

  • Don’t use the same word for both username and password.

7. Don’t use inappropriate email addresses.

  • You will use your email address for college and job applications.

  • Does your email address give a good impression?

  • may not be a good choice.

8. Don’t post pictures of yourself or others unless you want them to be seen by your parents, etc.

  • Be very selective of what you post.

  • Always have your parents review before you post.

  • If you are posting a picture with a friend in it, check with their parents before posting.

9. Don’t talk to strangers.

  • Don’t reveal any confidential information (first or last name, age, school, birth date, phone number, address, etc.)

  • The person you are chatting with may be a phony!
