Wink ***Remember*** - Stay Safe Online! Six tips for staying safe - post your own and add to the list!

eEveryone....I cannot stress this enough. You may want to take the time to read this! I just saw this presentation from the police that reminds us to NEVER EVER do the following:
(I thought I'd just remind you).

INTERNET SAFETY ADVICE:
1. Never post a picture of yourself online.
2. If you are going to post a picture make sure it does not have your real name in it.
3. If someone says, "This is what I look like" and then posts a real picture of themselves, don't believe that that is really them. They are most likely a horrible person that is trying to trick people into meeting them. Report any posts like this IMMEDIATELY.
4. If someone threatens you or says that they know who you are, report them IMMEDIATELY to a WI official.
5. If any bullying is occuring, do not take it lightly. Stand up for yourself and say that it will not be tolerated. If someone else is being bullied, don't run away, stay and defend them. Tell the bullies to back off.
6. If any member, whether you think you know them or not, says they want to meet you, and then gives the location, reject the offer and report them.

And one more thing....don't ever, ever think that you really know someone just by what they say online. EVER. No matter what they say or how they make you feel, they could very well be a dangerous online predator, nothing like they say!

You can have online friends, just make sure that you never try to meet them in real life.

MEMBERS' TIPS:
1. If you are going to post a picture of yourself, make sure there are no addresses or street names or school logos or anything else while posting a picture.

2. If you live in a town and there is a hockey/b-ball/whatever sport team that has your town name in it, I would not post it because it could tell your town.

Great reminder! We had a presentation that said the exactly the same thing in our school a couple of weeks ago.

Good Thread

Everyone needs to make sure they are staying internet safe.

You did a very good job explaining what everyone should do in order to stay safe. No one should ever do that to children, but children can help keep themselves safe. Just be careful about the internet. Oh and another tip is, if you are going to post a picture of yourself, make sure there are no addresses or street names or school logos or anything else while posting a picture.

And I would like to add this: If you live in a town and there is a hockey/b-ball/whatever sport team that has your town name in it, I would not post it because it could tell your town.

If you are going to meet someone from here make sure it is in a public place like mcdonalds or startbucks! Don't give them your actual adress intill you have actully met them!

My mom let me put a picture of my sisters and me in one of my albums in WI, but she said it had to be a private album. Then I deleted it after my friends looked at the picture. My friend did the same thing. Do you think this is safe enough because I think it is OK and so did my mom and my friend's mom. I posted a REAL picture. I am not a horrible person, I'm a little kid.
