What is Digital Citizenship?

Digital Citizenship is the behavior of the user, such as being appropriate, and responsible. The users should be aware that there are many hackers, trolls, and many more can access your account or get all of personal information such as credit/debit card info. and use it for their own use. Never give out your true identity unless you get permission from a adult or you really know that cite is really about.

Why is it necessary for everyone to understand and display positive Digital Citizenship practices?

It is necessary because if you say anything that may sound rude just because you were joking, or you are just trying to be rude, it will be saved in your personal documents. For example: You want to apply for a job, they will look at your personal document to see what you have said that will be considered, you my have just lost out on that job you wanted. In the future don't say anything rude or it will stay with you for the rest of your life.
