Research Tips: Online Safety

Part of being a skilled researcher is knowing how to protect yourself online! Here are some easy things you can do to protect your information: 

     Keep your personal information private.
     Only add friends you know in real life.
     Set your profile and blog to private.
     Use a nickname that doesn't identify your location, gender, or age.
     Never meet in person with anyone you first met online.
     Contact the site administrator if someone creates a social networking page in your name.
     Alter your pictures and videos before you post them to remove identifying information.
     Profile and photo share only with people on your friends list.
     Don’t post your plans or whereabouts on your site.
     Ignore harassing or rude comments posted on your profile.
And most importantly: 
     Think about the possible consequences of the information and photos you post!
