What is Digital Citizenship?

Digital Citizenship is basically all the rights that you have as a person also it's the reason why you should keep your information private and never EVER share it with anyone that you don't want stealing your identity. Only give your email address to sites that you have read the Privacy Policy which states what they would do with your information.

Why is it necessary for everyone to understand Digital Citizenship?

It is important for people to understand Digital Citizenship because they should know their rights as people, plus why they should always keep their information private because so people have a bad mindset. Also they need to learn what a Digital Citizenship is so that they can possibly defend themselves if accused of something you didn't do. Another reason is because they should know that bullying people is wrong and that they can go to jail for it. Cyberbully-ing or bullying in person is all very bad things to do to people.

7 Rules of Digital Citizenship

1. Never post anything you don't want anyone to find: Keep your posting words clean; try not to post when angry.

2. Never give away your email before checking to privacy policy: Always be careful when signing up for something that involves you giving away your email or any other crucial information that can potentially harm you if given to people with a bad mindset.

3. Use your head and keep private information private: Don't post any bad or embarrassing pictures or any other things you don't want always coming back at you in a bad way.

4. Use common sense when going online: Don't give anyone your personal information if you don't know exactly who they are or what they're for.

5. Don't be a cyberbully: Don't post anything that might potentially make someone feel bad about themselves or not feel like they matter. Victims may suffer from depression even though you didn't physically attack the receiver of the attack.

6. Try your best not to plagiarize: Try not to copy thing down on your paper that someone else did and you would like to take credit for it. If you don't know how to put whatever your researching about in your own words then put whatever someone said in quotations or and a foot or end note.

7. Everything you create is copyrighted: Even if you create a book or take a picture it's copyrighted. To avoid getting sued; try to look for the circled C for everything you might use in a project or a book your going to write.
