11 Jun

I received this information in my inbox and thought it was poignant to share, given my concern for privacy on the internet. While I don’t have children, I certainly have friends with kids, and a mentee that spends a good deal of time on the internet.

It’s up to parents and concerned friends to impart the importance of Internet Safety to their kids. Beyond bullying, we’re talking about an Internet generation that will have a long timeline or trail following them beyond theinitial post into their professional pursuits. Your reputation is all you have.
