Twitter is without a doubt the best way to share and discover what is happening right now.

 

 

 

 

We want Twitter to be a safe and open community. This help page provides some information and tips to help you practice safe Tweeting and keep your account secure.

 

Here are some basics:

 

- Use a strong password.

 

- Watch out for suspicious links, and always make sure you’re on Twitter.com before you enter your login information.

 

- Don't give your username and password out to untrusted third-parties, especially those promising to get you followers or make you money.

 

- Make sure your computer and operating system is up-to-date with the most recent patches, upgrades, and anti-virus software.

How to block pornography - Porn filter on phone - Anti porn software | DigitalCitiZEN | Parenting

How to block pornography - Porn filter on phone - Anti porn software | DigitalCitiZEN | Parenting | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Are you a parent wondering how to block pornography on your child's internet and mobile devices? Our free digital parenting guide explains what is involved.

 

It is estimated that there are over 4 million pornography sites, that 25% of searches on search engines are pornography related, 30% of all internet traffic is pornography and the percentage of internet users who view pornography is estimated at 42%.  (source: Internet filter review)

 

If that last statistic of 42% seems high to you, a survey by Cosmopolitan Magazine of 4,000 men found that 30% watched porn daily and  71% of men 18-34 watch it at least once a month.  In a 2014 survey by the Oxford Union in the UK, 71.8% of all students said they view porn; 91% of men vs 51% of women.

 

In February 9, 2014 the Irish Mirror reported that Ireland’s internet porn use has increased 77%since 2010.

 

The reality is that it is very easy for our kids to be exposed to it. However, if you want to block pornography it is becoming increasingly difficult and complicated. It is no longer as simple as installing some anti porn software on your PC or installing a porn filter on your PC because kids now access the internet predominantly on mobile devices and also via gaming consoles.

Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills

Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Child identity theft is considered to be one of the fastest-growing crimes. Kids’ identities are stolen over 50 times more than those of adults! We’re often so focused protecting our kids from so many threats in the real world; we forget that in cyberspace bad guys are stealing children’s identities to open credit cards, apply for loans, rent homes and even receive health care. Bad guys make money by selling and reselling the same child’s identity over and over. And they get away with it because parents don’t think about monitoring their son or daughter’s identity.

Why is this important? Children could potentially lose out on future jobs, internships and loans that require a clean background check or credit report—all because they were victims of identity theft as kids. That’s a future I’m trying to help my daughters avoid. Growing up in the real world is difficult enough that I don’t want their digital lives to hold them back.

Steven Stich's curator insight, December 9, 2014 8:40 PM

Did you know that children's identity is stolen over 50 times more than adults? I had no idea until reading this article. People who steal children's identity use their information to open credit cards, apply for loans, and this can affect kids ability to gain jobs in the future as a result. One day these children will be the future of America so it is vital that actions are taken by parents to ensure that their children are being safe online, and that no one is taking advantage of them.

PRIVACY AND ICT The whys and wherefores of privacy

Privacy is a sensitive subject to which people attach great importance. The only problem is that they do not know exactly why. Still, if it is so important then it is also necessary to establish why that is the case. It is therefore the task of ethicists to clarify the relevant theoretical arguments and practical implications.

Any topics that touch on privacy, such as the electronic files on patients (efp) and cameras in public spaces therefore soon become topics of heated social and political debate. People appreciate the advantages of new information technology but are at the same time alarmed to realize that so much is known about them. It is often emotions that play a decisive role because the relevant arguments are difficult to formulate not to mention weigh up.

What is Naivety in the Digital Age?

What is Naivety in the Digital Age? | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

[Start Text from Wikipedia]

Naivety (or naïvety, naïveté, etc.), is the state of being naive—having or showing a lack of experience, understanding or sophistication, often in a context where one neglects pragmatism in favor of moral idealism. One who is naive may be called a naif. [End Text from Wikipedia]

 

=============================================

 

Gust MEES

 

Naivety in the Digital Age means not realizing and accepting the dangers of Internet, the ignorance of the need to secure its computer and any other device connecting to the Internet (smartphones + ...), having no clue about Cyber-Security and people who think that Internet-Safety ALONE is enough!

 

===> Naif means ALSO thinking that a certain Operating System is secure and perfect! Nobody is perfect: <===

 

- Apple: http://www.scoop.it/t/apple-mac-ios4-ipad-iphone-and-in-security

 

- Linux: http://www.scoop.it/t/securite-pc-et-internet?q=Linux

 

- Windows: everybody knows that already...

 

 

In 21st Century Internet-Safety ALONE isn't enough anymore, a need for sure, but there is a MUST to teach and to learn ALSO about basics of Cyber-Security! Both together are a MUST! NOT ONLY one alone!

 

Would YOU like to get called a naif because not having those skills?

 

Certainly NOT, so check out my FREE courses please to become a good eCitizen, Digital Citizen and share it with YOUR family, colleagues, friends and...
