Anything anyone posts online remains there for an indefinite period and can be accessed by anyone. This can have serious consequences. Children and teenagers need to be made aware that they can control their online identity.
For young people, digital media are all about sharing: whether it’s their thoughts, photos or their latest favourite videos, almost all of the devices and platforms that youth use are designed to make it easy for them to share with others. The Think Before You Share guide and poster give youth the tools they need for safe, wise and ethical sharing online. They provide tips for dealing with “hot” emotional states like anger or excitement that can lead to making bad choices and they provide advice on where teens can turn to for support if things go wrong.
Young people want to make good decisions about sharing online. With the Think Before You Share guide and poster, they‘ll have the tools to do just that.
