Video: Start the conversation with your Little Sister about internet safety
Do you want to talk more about internet safety with your Little Sister, but don’t know where to begin? Here are three videos submitted to Trend Micro’s annual internet safety contest that might help you start the conversation.
“Message Sent” shows one of the many painful consequences of sexting.
“Too Much Information” humorously advises against over-sharing online.
And finally, do you ever wonder what life is like for people after their YouTube video goes viral?
All three pieces give the same message: “Think before you click!” Your Little Sister needs to understand that what she posts on the internet or otherwise distributes digitally can be used in ways that she never intended. Once it’s out there in cyberspace, she no longer has control over what happens to the content, who sees it or how they choose to respond to it.
As a bonus, here is this year’s Grand Prize Winner “Where are You?“, a spoken word piece explaining the two sides of being an online citizen.
