Facebook Safety

How to Stay Safe

Passwords

  • Make sure your password is something easy for you to remember but something that nobody would guess that you would make as your password.
  • Don't tell other people your password either except maybe your parent.
  • The less people know about your password, the harder it is to have your Facebook get hacked.

Profiles

  • Make sure you have your profile settings all locked down.
  • Have your pictures and posts locked down so not everyone can see them.
  • Make sure the only people that can see what you do and say are the people you are friends with.

What You Say

  • Make sure you only post things that are appropriate.
  • Don't post bad pictures of yourself or others.
  • Don't say anything you wouldn't say to your teachers or grandparents.

Be Nice!

  • Make sure you are nice online!
  • Do not bully anyone.
  • If anyone is being bullied online, stand up for them! It does not matter if you are there friend or not, it is wrong to bully or watch someone get bullied!

Location?

  • Do not put your location on your Facebook.
  • Someone could easily stalk you and go where you are going.
  • They could also go where you won't be (rob your house!)


What You Like

  • Make sure you only like things that you ACTUALLY like!
  • If you put things that you don't actually like then companies might go through your profile and think you like something that you don't.
  • Also make sure you like things that are APPROPRIATE.

Be Real!

  • DO NOT make a fake account!
  • Never make an account with a person you made up.
  • Use your name, or your nickname, but never a fake person.

Friends!

  • Do not friend people you don't know.
  • If someone you know friends you it's okay but if someone you don't know friends you, don't accept!
  • Only stay friends with your ACTUAL friends!
