Default Internet Safety - Friendly Reminder :)

Hello everyone! To help WI's community become safer, I decided to post this.

When posting something reflecting on your personal life, use common sense. Think about what you're saying. Would you want a ID theft seeing your post (well obviously none of us would want to encounter a person like that, but you know what I mean)? Would you be okay with a hacker seeing your post? Basically, are you comfortable with a complete stranger who could be a potential threat seeing what you're posting on the internet?

Remember that whatever you put out online is public and anyone has access to it. This isn't just WI, this goes for the whole internet. Even if you hide information from people who aren't your friends on Facebook, someone could still take your posts and publish it in the newspaper, regardless if they're your friend or not.

It's okay to lie on the internet. It's protecting yourself and is definitely not frowned upon. Just don't post anything risky about yourself OR someone you know. The internet is NOT a 100% safe place. Even WI isn't safe.

I hope everyone takes time to sink this in

Look, I'm not saying that you should lie about who you are (What your name is, that kind of thing). I'm just saying that if someone asks you any personal information, put them off track. If they ask you if you live in Montanna and you actually DO, tell them that you live in a different state, or just tell them you're not comfortable sharing that with them. You don't have to be rude to me, just to let you know.

Great reminder! (: I would never post any personal information anywhere on the internet, only to my actual friends (real life ones) on facebook.

Keep your real life friends and your "internet friends" in separate categories.

Glad you posted this here. While I never particularly give out personal information on any website, it's still a good thing to be reminded of. Hope that a lot of people will see this thread and follow its advice.
