Cyber Smart ( think before you post)

Hank took a photo of himself and flippantly posted it online. “No worries, my account settings are set on private so no one but my friends will see this” he thought. But really, because of one untrust worthy friend, it was shown to the whole world.

He was disregarding the dangers of what was happening around. Everyone saw the picture that he uploaded and it was unbeknownst to her. Once he found out that people around the world saw his photo, he regreted it because he couldn’t delete the photo off Facebook. “What if my family sees” she said to herself.Too often these days, people post photos on face book with little thought of the consequences. WE WANT YOU...TO BE CYBER-SMART!!!
The reason why you should listen to me is because unfortunately, in the future, you might not get unemployed because of the negative footprints that you have left behind. Because of one photo that you have posted, people might think that you have a bad background and the job might not go to you.

Another reason why you shouldn’t post up photos of yourself is because other dodgy people might pick it up and try to connect with you (in a bad way). You might think that your settings are on private, but really it is not. From one press of a button, that photo will be exposed to the world. You might have to face some serious ramifications.

The last reason why you should listen to the man himself is because, when you talk about someone on face book dis respectfully, you are actually making them feel bad. The person that you are saying it to, might do some bad things to them selves because of what you said about them. If you can’t say it to their face, then don’t say it on face book or to anyone else. DON’T BE SCARED.
