Cyber Smart

Part 1

She Snow White has just made the biggest mistake of her life, posting a photo of herself on her facebook page on in a whim. Her settings were on private and the only people that could see it was her friends... she thought but she was mistaken.

Her friends must have put the photo on another website, which was public. “ Oh no” She flippantly said to herself. Snow White saw that everyone had seen her photo online, she felt mortified at herself. She tried to in vain it off every website she could find it on, but it was everywhere and now everyone could see it.  “I give up” she sulked. Eventually it would go to her parents. “ How Embarrassing”

                                                         Part 2
Too often these days people post on pictures, information and many more things that aren't cybersmart. The consequences for this is hurting people, never finding a job and dodgy people might know everything about you. I urge you to think before you post, here are some information for the consequences.

If you want a job in the future you would need a positive footprint. Future employers will google search your name and see all the things you have done in the past. If you have a negative footprint, like bad photos, bad comments they will defiantly not except you.

You never know that a dodgy person can connect you, show your post to anyone and to share your photo to other people and then everyone in the world will see it. Some people put there settings on private, but are they really?

Many people have been hurt by what people say and do online. Some of the things that people say can start an argument. So if you can’t say it directly to there face then why would you say it online?

The Internet is a cool tool to use for learning, and finding out things. But if you do the wrong things on it, things can go wrong. So once again I encourage you to THINK BEFORE YOU POST!!!

  1. Hi Ashleigh,
    Your writing is very informative and I love it! I never knew that you were that good at writing. In my class we have been learning about how to be cyber smart too. We miss you here at Pt England and I cant wait until you come back.
