Be sure to use common sense and good judgement

Only you are accountable and responsible for for your actions and statements. Your poor decisions could have an impact on others.

Clarify that you are expressing your own views

It is important to distinguish between your personal opinions and views and the views of others.

Post only accurate and honest information

You should only post accurate and true information especially if you are representing some sort of organization.

Be cautious with your posts and what you make public

Anything posted on the internet is forever! You may be able to delete the site/post but keep in mind that some viewers have malicious intent and your past could resurface later in life.

Have fun with social media

Social media can offer an array of positive and meaningful things for users, so enjoy it and use these tools wisely!
