Digital Citizenship Rules

  1. Be kind; Being kind online means to think about what you say and how you say it. If you are about to post something rude, think about if you were sending that to your boss or guardian.
  2. Do not send your private information to anonymous groups; If you send information to groups you do not know it is very dangerous. They can hack you, spam you, and accuse you of stealing something.
  3. Remember who you friend on social networks; On social media remember who you follow because on social media you can chat with people and get help with things.
