Think B4 U Post

Synopsis
A person normally wouldn’t shout out the details of a private meeting or give a credit card to a total stranger - yet in effect that’s what people do when they post indiscreetly on social networking sites or are duped by phishing scams.

This video uses a light touch to deliver some very serious information on how people can protect their reputation and guard their privacy online while still having a good time using social networking sites. On the reputation side, viewers are advised to keep their postings positive, remember that intended readers (friends) are only a subset of actual readers (friends, teachers, prospective employers), and more. And on the privacy side, viewers are made aware of the consequences of cyber-bullying and defamation as well as steps they can take to safeguard their personal information and avoid online/offline predators. Data mining is also discussed.
