How can you use social networks safely and responsibly?

You have to be very very careful with what you post and who you have accepted as a friend or a follower. You should also be careful with who you text or talk with on these social networks. Also you should be aware that once a picture or a piece of information or anything is posted on whichever social network site it stays there forever, even if you delete you never know what people might have done with it.

What should you avoid doing?

Social networks let you post all kinds of information. The more information you put online the more people can find out about you. Some people might use this to bully you or contact you and lie about being into the same things as you. So don’t post any private information, don’t tell anyone where you live, your phone number or any other personal piece of information to strangers. Some people set up fake profiles on social networks. They even pretend to be girls or boys your age when actually they’re much older. It can be really hard to tell the difference, so be careful with who you have shared contact with. Just as social networks can be used to share lots of information about yourself and stay in touch with all your friends, there are some people that can also use these things to share nasty things, embarrassing pictures, horrible comments, fake profiles and say nasty things to people. So if any random person starts texting you do not reply and block him immediately.
