Netiquette

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that there is a real person on the other end of your game or wall post. It’s easier to say and do things online that you might not do in real life. some things that are done may hurt that person’s feelings or make them feel unsafe or embarrassed. It’s important to treat people online the same way that you would face to face.

You should always:

1.treat others the way you would want to be treated. Avoid using bad language and don’t say things to make others feel bad.

2.Make sure you follow ‘netiquette’. Understand what is acceptable to do and say and what isn’t. For example, if you type a message to someone in UPPER CASE they may think you are shouting at them.

3.Take care of yourself. If someone says something rude or something that makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t respond. Leave the chat room or forum straight away.

tell yor parents or another adult if you feel uncomfortable, sad or scared about anything you have seen online.
