Why is it important?
• How can I convince my friend that he mistook the tone of
my e-mail without him getting even angrier?
• Where can I turn if my computer or cell phone is hacked?
• How can I support someone who’s being cyberbullied
without becoming a victim myself?
• If Wikipedia is an unreliable source, why is it so popular?
• Why can musicians create mashups of different songs but I
can’t use paragraphs from different articles to write a
paper?
• Will government legislation limit what I can do on the
Internet?
How can we help?

Should I Share This?
Look at What You’re Sharing…
• What are you doing?
• How are you dressed?
• What are you saying?
And Ask Yourself…
• Should I be doing this?
• Would I wear this in public?
• Would I say this to my
parents/teachers?
• Is this going to embarrass me in
a year?
Your profile is an extension of
YOU—make sure that you present
yourself well!

How Private IS Your Profile?
Privacy
Protecting Your Privacy
Your full name and address aren’t the only things that can identify you!
THINK before you share:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Your current location
Where you go to school
Where you work
Your birthday
Your cell phone number
Your activities and plans
Any online passwords

Why Plagiarism & Copyright Matter
Nineteen-year-old Kaavya
Viswanathan had a stellar start to
a writing career with the
publication of her first book, How
Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild,
and Got a Life.
Her career as an author crashed,
though, when it came out she’d
“borrowed” the words of many
other writers in writing her own
novel.
No excuses could save her work or
her reputation.
