    Be a Responsible Digital Citizen
     

    Communications devices like cell phones, computers, and social media sites are powerful methods to stay connected. How you choose to use them ca​n make all the difference.

    Protect your profile.

    • Only connect with people you know and trust on social network sites.
    • Be careful about sharing personal information, even with people you know in a private email or text. Once you hit send, you can’t take it back!

    Password protect your phone.

    • Be sure to password protect your phone and keep your password private.
    • Not doing this is the digital equivalent of leaving your home or car unlocked.

    Model digital citizenship.

    • Think before you post, send a text message, email or tweet. 
    • Always remember that you alone are responsible for your words and actions.

    Be part of the solution.

    • Stand up for human rights by refusing to forward text messages or photos that are hurtful, demeaning, or disrespectful.
