The digital world is exciting. Social media platforms and easily accessible information 24/7 can make life easier but can also bring pressures and dangers for students. According to the Safer Internet Centre 1 in 4 Young People are concerned about thie online reputations and 1 in 3 calls they deal with are concerned with reporting abuse.
Remember there are practical steps that you can take to protect yourself online.
1. Be careful what you say on Twitter, Facebook and Social Networks. Remember:
STOP –Why are you posting this content?
THINK – would you be happy for everyone to see it?
2. Get down with YOUR Privacy settings – Tweak and check these on a regular basis. Remember they differ from platform to platform. Make sure you update these on Smartphones and Tablet devices.
3. Be careful with Apps which claim to offer texts and images which vanish. Once you click Send you lose control of this information and where your information can end up.
4. Create positive content to counteract any negative results which may be floating about.
What we do today and every day is recorded and stored without any expiration date or delete button. Something posted as a Teen online or via social networks may still be still kicking around and accessible and may come back to haunt you when applying for your first job or perhaps getting into University. This is the first generation of young people to have to think about this. And the first generation of parents to worry about it too. Now is the time to start thinking about your Online Reputation and managing your digital footprint. Don’t let it limit your opportunities or land you on the wrong side of the law as a result of some foolish thing you’ve said online. Online Reputation Matters…. Look after yours.
