Soumi’s Internetiquette Tips
1st: Do not give out personal details like your age, birthday, phone number, address, email or passwords. For children, use only first names and do not post stuff about their schools/ teachers/ hobby classes, etc. Do not be over-sharers!
2nd: Respect others online and don’t use bad or inappropriate words, bully, or display mean behaviour (you could get into trouble for that)
3rd: Avoid websites that are not monitored by trusted moderators. Monitored websites have systems in place to protect the user. It is like having a cyber security force to help protect you)
4th: Review any social networking site with your children and use these pointers to check if the website is safe for them to use – before they create an account on these sites (you are their personal security force). Use websites like www.net-aware.org.uk
5th: Report anything that you think is inappropriate
