One should always think before they post. Online communication is instant, wide-reaching and difficult to retract, so you need to be sure you want it out there before you put it out there. People have got into a lot of trouble for posting inappropriate comments and images on the internet. Think Penny Sparrow, Matthew Thuenissen and many more. Thankfully, our friends at SaveTnet, have given us this helpful guide to posting online:
It really is that simple. The only person you can trust to keep your private photos private is you. Once you send them to someone else, they’re out of your control and you’re relying on the discretion and good judgment of other people to stop them ending up on every phone at school or on a public site.
If you don’t want everyone to know about it, don’t post it. Once it’s out there, it could be there for life.
Here is a fun video to further elaborate:
SaveTNet Cyber Safety NPC is a registered non-profit company, which aims to save lives by creating awareness for responsible digital engagement.
We do this, by offering a NETwork of support through partners and SaveTNet is the first point of reference for people who need cyber safety information or help.
In this way, SaveTNet also helps to fight the dark side of the web, by adding support to the group who is fighting digital pornography, human trafficking, sexual grooming and other related issues.
