Cyberbullying: who could you be talking to???
Who's on the internet?
The internet is one of the most damaging things in the world. Places like facebook, twitter and instagram allow anyone over the age of 13 on thier sites, however anyone can lie about their age. Ever sent a photo to a friend that you wouldn't want anyone else to see? If so, that person could send that photo to the whole world. This is why we need to be careful about what we say and do on the internet. talking to a boy or girl who you don't know on facebook? That boy or girl could just be someone who is trying to groom you. Grooming is where someone online asks you for information such as phone details and addresses or photos of you. Groomers try to make you feel uncomfortable. Never reveal any private information about you, as this information could go to anywhere in the world. Only talk to people who you know or trust on the internet. If you ever feel uncomfortable on the internet, make sure you always speak to someone who can give you confident advice.
