Great reminder! Also people remember, internet friends and real freinds are two completely different things. No matter how nice an internet friend seems to be, you never know is on the other side. Like on webkinz the other day i saw two people telling each other their emaill address's by using the trick of "read the first letter of every word". On clubpenguin, i saw people telling each other their address's and saying they were going to meet for icecream. I asked them if they knew each other outside of clubpenguin, and they both said no. There are scammers and hackers out there. Like you said be safe
Thank you, Gillian! I always feel kind of nervous when posting things about my self. I also feel kind of bad when I lie to a cyber friend. But when they start asking me to post pictures of my self and give them my phone number, I totally back away from them. Thankfully, that only happened to me once. I have not talked to the person since.
But of course that wasn't on Webkinz Insider. That's the thing I like about here- there aren't many bullies and we all get along very nicely. The staff helps keep us safe and makes this a wonderful home for us all to enjoy together.
Lying is okay I guess but I don't encurouge it. If someone asks, "Is Kelly your real name?" And it's not, just say, "Nope. I can't post my real name." Or something. Ecspecially since I'd be hurt if I found out all my friends told me were lies. (;
Honestly, all I give out is my first age and a bit of my personality. Plus my state, && on other sites, my age sometimes, but I'm not the only one doing it. Trust me, I'm very safe. All I have on facebook is people I know in real life, and the only people who know a LOT about me, including age, name, last name, stuff.. are my 2 closest friends online, or if not the closest, ones that even my parents trust enough to let me email.
Just be careful is the main thing. But don't be rude ; you have to care about other people's feelings too. Insted of telling something you don't want, like age, just say no. Don't be like, "NO WAY! YOUR SO MEAN AND STUPID, I HATE YOU!" Afterall, there is a chance, the person on the other side is who they say they are.
But another point, to show how easy it is to make a fake account.. my mom made one once, some Jenny girl, using some pictures from a magazine, to see something. [don't worry, she didn't even add people] But a huge amount of people sent her friend request because of pictures. You never know who is behind the computer.

You could just add people you know on real life. That's the safest thing to do. Or at least, if you do have one, you don't have to post pictures of yourself, use your real age, lastname, city\state or anything.

Most the time.
