7 Rules of Digital Citizenship

Rule 1. Be careful what/how you say something on the internet: if you are on the internet it is hard to show expression.

Rule 2.DO NOT give out personal information to websites without reading the privacy policy: when you give your phone number, email, credit card numbers, etc. people can use those things to spam you with unwanted things.

Rule 3. Social Media can be fun but it can also be very dangerous; if you post something that is personal to everybody on social media you will never be able to take it back and it could put your life at risk.

Rule 4.Don't use any name that could tell people who you actually are; use anonymous names til you know the website well enough to share maybe your name.

Rule 5. DO NOT say anything online that you wouldn't say out loud; if you can't tell it to the person in person then don't say anything. "If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all."

Rule 6.Do not plagiarize and make sure when you use your own words you use your OWN words

Rule 7.

Digital Citizenship

Anytime you use the internet make sure you follow the simple rules above. These rules are part of digital citizenship. Digital citizenship is when you are kind online and use your manners, don't bully anyone, don't give out personal information, and do not say or do anything online that you wouldn't do in person. Nobody likes to be bullied or made fun of because of something they said/did. Make sure to always be polite and kind to others online just like you would in person. To me digital citizenship is very important to how you are looked at online and can put a very big effect on your real life. In all relations just make sure that you don't do anything online that you wouldn't do in person. "Stay safe my friends."
