7 rules that you should follow

  1. Digital Etiquette- Reread before you post or text. Never post or text something to people without rereading it.
  2. Information Privacy- Never give out personal information. Don't open spam e-mails or messages from random people.
  3. Social Networking- Only contact with friends. Social Networking can be bad. Some people bully each other on it and hurt there feelings.
  4. Online Safety- Be friendly. Keep your password and other information a secret. Never trust peoples account.
  5. Cyber bullying- Never say anything rude to others. You can hurt peoples feelings and make them not want to be your friends. Even if your friends tell you to that doesn't mean you should do it.
  6. Plagiarism- Plagiarism is like cheating. When I was in the third grade I wrote my mom's name on a line that says you did something that you didn't. After that I got in big trouble so I never did it again. You should never do it.
  7. Copyright- Let the person know you used the picture. It is almost the same thing as cheating. All you need to do is when you use the picture, write at the bottom of the screen where you got it from and who did it.

What is digital citizenship?

Digital citizenship can be good, but it can also be bad. It can be good by people using social networks the right way. It can be bad by people using it to post pictures about people doing humiliating things like getting hurt or people fighting. If you post that you can even get your account taken. So never do it or you will get punished.

It is necessary for everyone to understand because it is always good to be positive about everything so everyone will be more happy. Our generation is what needs to make it better. If everyone went on social networks and used them the right way we will all be fine. You can do this by being respectful and not saying bad words or bad things about people.
