Follow these tips to be a good cyber citizen.

The web is an awesome place for exchange and flow of ideas and information. Respect others and use good judgment and “netiquette” to build a happier and safer cyber space!

Great post! A very informative one. Be a Good Cyber Citizen and have an awareness and knowledge in cyber safety. Cyber safety, also known as internet safety or online safety, is the knowledge and practice of maximizing an internet user's personal safety and minimizing his or her security risks. It is also widely accepted as the self-protection from computer crime. Cyber Safety is something that parents and teachers need to focus on because there are a lot of bad things that can happen online, especially to students and minors who are vulnerable to attacks. A lot of people can benefit from this – students, teachers and parents who would like to enhance cyber safety in their homes or schools. You can subscribe to the channel to ensure that you are always updated when it comes cyber safety. It is also possible to follow their updates from social media by liking their page on Facebook or following them on Twitter. Whether you are an educator or a parent, you must accept the fact that technology and the internet are now imperative in students' lives. It is your duty to ensure that these students are able to benefit from these, but it is also your responsibility to protect their safety. Thank you! =)
