Digital Etiquette

RULE:

When you are on the internet, always say nice things and be kind. Sometimes, it is hard to identify humor in your text messages, so always make sure that you are being clear.

Information Privacy

RULE: Never post any private information on the internet. ( phone number, address, etc. ) Some people can also post things like, click here, and you can win $10.000! Sometimes, these things lie to you and ask for your private information. This can sometimes end up as someone stealing your money and other things that you are better off avoiding.

Social Networking

When you are on a social network, don't post anything you wouldn't want your parents, teachers, or any other important people in your life to see. Also remember that what you put on your personal profile is basically your identity on the internet.

Online Safety

When you are on the internet, you are always safer keeping your identity ( name, address, phone number, etc. ) to yourself. If you are on the internet, it is safer to not use your real name, but as something like kitty master or ladybug 4000. And don't forget that not only strangers can be dangerous, but people you know, too.

Cyber Bullying

Some people on the internet can bully you, and it can hurt as much as getting bullied in person. If you are being bullied on the internet, you should tell an adult, even if that person is your friend. If you get angry about what someone said to you on the internet, then walk away for a minute and think about what to say before saying something mean that will be there forever.

Plagiarism

RULE: When you are doing a book report, essay, or anything like that, you cannot copy anything someone else has already done on that topic. ( Coping what they did. ) If you want to put what they said, then you can give them credit by putting the information in quotation marks, and mentioning the author.

Copyright

RULE: When you are on the internet, you cannot use someone's picture, writing, or any other creative thing that is someone else's if it is copyrighted unless you have their permission. If you do, then you can get sued.
