The meaning of Internet Safety refers to precautions you should observe when on the computer. It's to make sure personal information stays safe and is not given away to any weirdo strangers. =]

Facts OF some sort ~(^-^~) (~^-^)~

In a survey of 8-18 year-olds, the foundation found that:

Half of teens (13-18) post personal information about themselves online.

• One-third of girls (13-18) have talked about sex online with someone they’ve never met in person.

• One in eight online teens has discovered an adult posing as much younger.

• Nearly one-third of teens have talked online about meeting in person with someone they know only from the Internet.

How to prevent bad things from happening to you on the inter-web ~(^-^~) (~^-^)~

  1. Make sure you know who you are talking to while online
  2. If the predator wants to meet you, do not agree unless you truly know them
  3. Don't respond to bullying it will not end well
  4. Don't post anything that you would not say to a stranger
  5. if things get out of control, block the user from talking to you! :O
