    You can participate in Internet Safety Day by sharing ONE GOOD THING…

    Think of a good thing you’ve done or seen somebody else do to make the Internet a better place or the world a better place with the help of the Internet (here are some examples), then share it with a little text or video telling us about it – just 15-30 seconds or 50 words, short and sweet.  Here are some example topics…

    • Texting a kind message to a friend who was sad
    • Helping a grandparent figure out Facebook
    • Making sure a young cousin is posting appropriate photos
    • Getting a bunch of parents together and teaching them about how to use social media safely

    Have fun with it!  Click here to view one video example.
