Internet musts and Inter-nots
Learn what to do and what not to do on the internet.
The internet can be deceiving to some people...
While the internet is a place for information and entertainment, the social media side of things can be very tempting to use. But heaven knows that people aren't always what you expect them to be. Trying to figure out what to tell and hide from people can be difficult to do. But this is more than just a place to share selfies and post pictures of parties. It is a place full of deep secrets.
The do's of the internet
Put parental controls on who can see your pictures.
Have an adult/guardian with you when starting a new account.
Only accept friends if you know that they are really your friend.
If you are lied to, report them by clicking the flag button.
Bring an adult/guardian when you want to meet someone you met online in person.
Follow the rules and safety of the websites guide to keep safe.
The don'ts of the internet
Accept friend requests without knowing all the details.
Make a fake account yourself.
Post pictures of your address online.
Say you'll meet him in person without your parent/guardian.
Post imbaressing photos that can be used against you.
Tell them your address, age, mobile number or name of school you go to.
Although you may never realise it, there are always consequences when nothing is done about a cyberstalker. These consequences are a lot more dangerous than you thik at first.
You may be approached by the stalker, have them make a fake story about you, use your photos against you and can turn all your friends in real life against you. Search this link to know a better understanding about the consequences and if you would do any of these things:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_o8auwnJtqE
