How to be safe online

Rights & Responsibilities

On this flyer you will learn how to be safe online and what your rights and responsibilities are on social media. You will also find out what you should and shouldn't post online so you can always be safe on the internet.

Posting Pictures & Videos

You can take some snaps or shoot a video anywhere and share them online in no time. Photos and videos can be a great way to show your friends what you’re up to.

But remember, it can be really hard, sometimes impossible, to delete pictures or videos from the internet or other people’s mobiles. Once you’ve shared something online or on your mobile you’ve lost control of it - it can be copied, shared and even edited!

Cyber Bullying

My story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self harm
After Amanda Todd posted this video she committed suicide and was found in her room where she had hanged herself. She had attempted suicide many times before but hadn't managed to kill herself. She would cut herself and take an overdose of drugs and alcohol. Because she was being cyber bullied she had anxiety, major depression and panic disorders.

Social Networking

You probably know that you have to be over 13 to use sites like Facebook, Instagram, Tumbler and Twitter. If you are under 13 and using this sites you should know that you are putting yourself at risk, because you are too young to understand how social networking works and how it can be dangerous.

Think Twice Before You Do Anything

If you send an embarrassing picture or video to a friend it could end up anywhere. If you post it online anyone could see it, including your parents, teachers or future employers!

Remember – it’s never too late to get help if you’ve shared something you regret. You can report photos and videos to the websites they are on or seek help from an adult you trust.
