Rule #1:Digital Etiquette
This helps to show digital etiquette and to be respectful to everyone on the internet even though you may seem anonymous.
Rule #2:Information Privacy
When going on the internet don't share any information about yourself to anyone, even if you may know them because anyone with the ability to know your personal information can do many things. These include harassment, spam, tracking and worst case scenario identity theft.
Rule #3: Social Networking
Posting things on a social network that are negative or inappropriate can have a big impact on your future. There is nothing you can do about a post after you post it and there is no hiding it.
Rule #4: Online Safety
Even if people may seem friendly you should never trust the information they post because it is easy to lie or conceal information. Never conceal and part of your identity either unless you have permission or you are sure.
Rule #5: Cyberbullying
Cyber bullying is a serious issue and and there are many ways to deal with it and handle the situation. Cyber bullying can hurt someone's feelings to the point where they feel rejected. Never cyber bully yourself and help others if they are dealing with cyber bullying.
Rule #6: Plagiarism
Without giving your source or the author of any information you steal or write word for word this is called plagiarizing, which can cause serious consequences. You can either paraphrase or use quotation marks, but always cite the source and the author by use of a bibliography.
Rule #7: Copyright
By stealing a creator's original work or doing something illegally with it such as sell it can get you sued or in deeper consequences, unless you had permission. You don't have the right to break someone's copyright on something that is theirs.
