Project Rockit is a team that goes around to different schools and do talks about social media, cyber-bullying and things around that area. Yesterday they came to our school.
They did a section on ‘hot tips’ about ho to be safe and to help stop cyber bullying online.
The ones i’m going to focus on are NOT TELLING OTHER PEOPLE YOUR PASSWORD
and USING EMOJIS TO TELL YOUR EMOTIONS
KEEPING YOUR PASSWORD PRIVATE
that’s because i always tell one of my close, trustworthy friends my password so if i forget it, they will know. The reason you shouldn’t tell people your password is because if someone knows that, then they can get into your computer and take all your personal info and sell it to people.
USING EMOJIS TO TELL YOUR EMOTIONS
i use emojis all the time because i LOVE them! i think emojis are cool because you can even say a whole sentence by using one or two emojis.
the reason i chose this is because it is something that social media really lacks. Tone of voice and body language. if you were jokingly saying “you were so naughty in class today” they might mistake you and think you were telling them off for being naughty. if you used an emoji thwn things would be allot easier E.G (you were so naughty in class today:) they would know you meant it in a jokingly manner.
Those are my HOT TIPS for Social media Inspired by Project Rockit. Here are the rest to make sure you stay safe on Social media.
