Tips for Safe Social Networking for Teens from ConnectSafely.org

Be your own person. Don’t let friends or strangers pressure you to be someone you aren’t.

And know your limits. You may be Net-savvy, but people and relationships change, and

unexpected stuff can happen on the Internet.

Be nice online. Or at least treat people the way you’d want to be treated. People who are nasty

and aggressive online are at greater risk of being bullied or harassed themselves. If someone’s

mean to you, try not to react, definitely don’t retaliate, and talk to a trusted adult or a friend who

can help. Use privacy tools to block the meanies.

Think about what you post. Sharing provocative photos or intimate details online, even in

private emails, can cause you problems later on. Even people you consider friends can use this

info against you, especially if they become ex-friends.

Passwords are private. Don’t share your password even with friends. It’s hard to imagine, but

friendships change and you don’t want to be impersonated by anyone. Pick a password you can

remember but no one else can guess. One trick: Create a sentence like “I graduated from King

School in 05” for the password “IgfKSi05.”

Read between the “lines.” It may be fun to check out new people for friendship or romance,

but be aware that, while some people are nice, others act nice because they’re trying to get

something. Flattering or supportive messages may be more about manipulation than friendship

or romance.

Don’t talk about sex with strangers. Be cautious when communicating with people you don’t

know in person, especially if the conversation starts to be about sex or physical details. Don’t

lead them on – you don’t want to be the target of a predator’s grooming. If they persist, call your

local police or contact CyberTipline.com.

Avoid in-person meetings. The only way someone can physically harm you is if you’re both in

the same location, so – to be 100% safe – don’t meet them in person. If you really have to get

together with someone you “met” online, don’t go alone. Have the meeting in a public place, tell

a parent or some other solid backup, and bring some friends along.

Be smart when using a cellphone. All the same tips apply with phones as with computers. Be

careful who you give your number to and how you use GPS and other technologies that can

pinpoint your physical location.
