The things kids post online could have an impact on people in the real world.
Being online is a great way to share information and connect with friends. But it’s important to remember that the things we post online can affect people in the real world.
Before you post anything online, ask yourself a few questions. How would you feel if your family, your teachers, your coaches, or your neighbors found it?
Even if you turn on privacy settings, it's impossible to completely control who sees what you post. Or when.
Do you want a message or photo you posted to show up years from now, when you apply for college or a job?
Once you post information online, you can't take it back. Even if you delete it, it can still live somewhere else.
While a video or picture may be funny to you, it may be embarrassing or hurtful for someone else.
Being online is part of your life, so stop and think before you click.
