Posting Online: Think before you post
• What types of things do you, your parents,
your friends, your siblings and other people
you know post online?
• What are the positive and negative results
from posting all of the things you listed
online?
Posting Photos: things to consider
• Do you have on appropriate clothing?
• Are you doing something that you might not
want everyone (parents, teachers, friends and
family included) to know about?
• Can you tell too much about your personal
life/personal information from the photo
(such as your address on a house or your
phone number written on something)?
Posting Written Comments:
things to consider
• Is the comment derogatory or demeaning?
• Is the comment appropriate for everyone
(including parents, teachers, friends and
family) to see?
• Is the comment something that you want
everyone to know?
• Does your comment contain personal/private
information?
• Is your comment true and/or accurate?

What Private
Information on your
Profile is Actually
Public:
Privacy settings for
sharing content are
different from the
settings for
connecting with
other people.
• This means that, when people search for you, they can still see information about
you: your photo, gender, age, education, hometown etc.
• These settings also determine how people can find you. Can they do it simply by
searching for your name? Can anyone add you as a friend? Send you a message?
• While you want friends to be able to find you, be sure that your personal information
is not visible to strangers by changing these settings.

Who can
see the
information
you have on
Facebook or
other media
websites?
• Websites allow you to change privacy settings so that you can share content with
Everyone, Friends of Friends, or Friends only.
• You should set your profile to “Friends only,” and become friends with only people
you know are friends with in person.
• “Preview my Profile” is an option on Facebook which lets you see your profile as
someone else would.

I HAVE MY SETTINGS ON
“PRIVATE”, SO I’M SAFE, RIGHT?

CONSEQUENCES OF POSTING INFORMATION
• When you post something online, where does that information go?
– It may be owned by the website it’s posted on.
– It is saved in the memory of the computer you are using at the time,
even if you delete it.
– It is saved on servers or computers around the world by the web
address owners.
– Coaches, high schools, colleges, and employers can look at the
information you post and decide that you should not be on the team,
or that you should not receive a scholarship or job.
• Can it ever be erased or deleted?
– Not really. You can erase the post, but it still exists elsewhere and can
be found even if you can no longer see it where you originally posted
it. Remember- the internet is forever!
• Who owns/has rights to the information you post online?
– The website/web address owners.
– Sometime you have a partial ownership, but not always.
– This is all dependent on the terms of use for the particular website you
are using and they are all different.
NOBODY WILL EVER WANT TO
KNOW WHAT’S ON MY WEBSITE,
WILL THEY?
