Cool Remember - Stay Safe Online!! Do you know the 10 tips? More added with every edition! These tips could keep YOU safe!

Everyone....I cannot stress this enough. You may want to take the time to read this! This is the fourth edition of "Remember - Stay Safe Online!" - it has been very popular and I hope that it continues to help all who read it. Well anyways, I 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. Click the Red Flag under the user's name and report them for being a bully.

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.

7. NEVER, EVER say the name of a team or town because it may give more information about where you live. (Thanks to IttyGirl2)

8. Don't ever say something online that you wouldn't say outloud. Who knows where the words you type will end up?

9. On any website, if someone wants to become added to your friends list, don't accept the offer until you have looked more at that person's history and what you know about them.

10. Don't ever reveal your age or any other personal facts. The Internet can spread things fast.


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.


Each year many kids and adults alike fall into the trap of online predators. Let's keep WI a safe and fun place for everyone!

If everyone makes the effort to be safe, no one will ever have to worry much! ;-)

I'd like to acknowledge the WI staff for their excellence in keeping WI safe! You guys are the best!

THANKS FOR READING AND STAY SAFE EVERYONE!

Another tip is to be careful about ALL the pics you post.

Example:If you post a pic of your dog, be careful because the tag on it might show your phone #.

Very true! We need to be careful on every website we go to. Our fun, and entertainment, is secondary to our safety. Every picture we post, that came from one of our actual cameras needs to be looked over, to erase dates, addresses, names,and anything else. WI may seem very safe, but truly, unless you are positive that the person you are talking to is your next door neighbor, or BFFL who you talk to at school, don't share anything personal with them. Great point, and sleep quietly on this nigh.

Rep! I have another one: If somebody tells you to show a picture of yourself DONT DO IT. Even if they say "Your a stalker then" THEY can be a stalker.
