Digital Ettiquette

Digital Etiquette is something social online. For example, if you say something mean, it really says it or your really being rude to the real person. It's like social Kik or even fake Facebook. Never type in all capital letters. It makes the person on the other side of the screen think your yelling at them. You also shouldn't try to be funny because it might not make the other person so happy or it will not come out right the way you want it to. Digital Etiquette can also be used as netiquette.

Information Privacy

Information Privacy is everything you do online like say I wanted to buy something on a not known site and it asked me where I live , my email, phone number,etc. Sometimes it would take it away or even actually track me down if the writer wanted too. The sight would even give me stuff I don't want and/or when i go online, put as many ads they wanted on my screen. It's always good to find if there was any information on who wrote or made the sight. The person who wrote it could even try to put something the other people didn't see on the bottom or where they thing other people would not find it. There could even be an identity theft. He could take the money out of the card and buy things i didn't even know of.

Social Networking

Social Networking is something that you can talk to other people with. You can communicate with friends, family, even people you don't even know. You can meet people and plan parties or plan to go places with people. You also keep your friends up too date on what your up too at the moment. You can discuss all the things you want, like politics, sports, hobbies, jobs, etc. There are hundreds of thousands of Networking sites just like Facebook, Bebo,, and friendster. Just to let you know, you also need to ask a parent before you join any of the Social Networking sites. You can also make a profile about yourself. Also remember to not share anything you don't want anyone to see. You can do almost anything, you can post messages, pictures but you also have to be super careful because it you identity.

Online Safety

What Online Safety really is, lets say you wanted to share your personal information or identity. That would be dangerous because it's the same exact thing if you were to give your address, name, age, where you live. Even if your on a website that you barely know anything about, and your username or profile asked you to put in any personal information like your gender and/or anything of your personal life. Always remember to ask your parent or guardian if you could use any particular site. It's really important to let your parents know what your doing at all times. And if you get an email from some random person, it's best not to answer it or write back. On the subject bullies or anything don't tell anyone your password or anything because they could use it against you. Remember to always tell an adult when anyone is making fun of you or bullying you.

Cyber bullying

If you were a cyber bully, you would have a nonstop process of bullying people on the internet. It's not just bullying, it's making fun of, sending bad stuff to people, etc. If you are getting bullied on the internet, you should always tell an adult what the situation is. You don't have to just tell an adult, you tell a principal, teacher or even an older brother or sister that way they will tell and adult. It can include messages, bad photos of you or even emails or even rumors can make it worse. It's always good to watch out for when people are spreading secrets or anything else on the internet. The way cyber bullying works is if it makes anyone feel bad or is not safe, it's cyber bullying. It can even cause sickness, headaches. You should always remember there's another real life person on the other side of the screen. Always think how the other person that there just hiding from there appearance on the persons screen name and don't ever fight back. They just want to see your reaction.


Lets say you were to copy something directly from a book or a whole entire page without quotations. That would be called plagiarism. Even if you were to copy a graph, a saying for an assignment, or even an art picture. That would be steeling and steeling is a crime. It's like saying it was yours. If you were ever to take or copy something like that, remember to ALWAYS use quotations and/or say who it was from or the site it came on. It's pretty obvious if you copy and paste something on a project or a report. It even counts as plagiarism if you copy someone you knows work, your brother or sisters, even if it was a long time ago, it might be obvious to some teachers or parents. Well when you teacher asks you to do an assignment, she wants to see how much you know about the subject, not how how much you can copy something. Even if you were to go to collage, it may get you kicked out or even worse. Even if you didn't go to collage yet, you could still fail the class.


Say you were to write or make a book and you put copyright on it. That means any other people couldn’t use it without asking with permission or, other times, people ask for money for use of your work as long as they name who wrote it. You don’t just have to write a book you can make a song, newspaper, a movie, etc. The original c on the representation sign means creative work. That means that you have certain rights on how you publish your work. You may also add thing to your work like making your book a movie, series, song, etc. This all means that the author and only the author can publish or copy your own work without having to ask anyone or having to pay anyone a lot of money. You could maybe put your book or movie on the internet. People couldn’t use your work even if it was a dance, a song, computer game or writing for a new building. Somewhere in brain pop, it says” The Congress shall have Power… to promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.”
