Applications such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and even Minecraft are being used by students regardless of their ages.It ia a fashion nowadays to have a  twitter or facebook account. These applications are not bad at all , and can be used in amazing ways, especially in our schools. However, , when used inappropriately or without guidance, it can cause a lot of problems with issues such as self-esteem or bullying. Online behaviours today may also come back to haunt students in the future. (Quote from the author).

The Internet is forever.Security and Privacy Settings must be regularly managed.‘Friends’ have a new meaning in today’s world of Social Media Students need to think Critically about what they read, and decide to share on the InternetStrive to keep our students safe while they are at schoolSometimes as an Educator you may find out about very negative behaviors and images of your students online.Build Character Education Initiatives and create Digital Citizenship documents.Students behaviors online are being tracked by companyObtaining new ‘Friends’ may act like a drug in the brainYes, even our youngest students will someday grow up.
