Online, everything you say or post, is there forever. So you need to be very careful about what you post online. When you apply for a job,many places look at your social media page for information. They can see those post and may not hire you because of them. The same thing is done by colleges. So beware of what you post.

Double Standard: A rule that is unfairly applied to different people or groups of people

Meeting new people is a fun and exciting experience for most people of all ages. With social media being such a big part of today's world, many people meet online. This makes communication easier, and even doesn't require the people to be relatively close to each other. While this is nice, precautions need to be taken when meeting someone online. It is very easy for someone to pretend to be someone they're not online.

Going online is something we do every day. And sometimes we don't understand how big of an impact our words have on the other people online. Cyberbullying is a huge problem in America today. It is important to try and stop it at the source. Do not post or comment anything online that could hurt someone's feelings. And stand up for someone when you see a person posting bad things about them. Everyone should get to enjoy going online so help others do this by standing up to cyberbullies.
