Words can hurt.

  • If you are being cyberbullied tell someone you can trust.
  • Only post things that you would actually say in person.

Post only things you would let your Grandparents read or see.

THINK before you do

T - is it True?

H - is it Hurtful?

I - is it Inaccurate?

N - is it Nice?

K - is it Kind?

THINK before you post!!

Things To Know

Whatever is on the internet can be seen by the whole world.

Even if you delete something it can still be found.

Only chat with people you know.

You never know who can see/read what you post

  • There are people called online predators. If someone who you don't know is making you feel uncomfortable or trying to meet you in person, don't go. Then tell a trusted adult and stop talking to that person.
  • Often an employer will look at social media to see what you are posting. This can effect if you will get the job or not.
