It is important that students understand a few things about social media:
- Just because you typed instead of said it, does not make negative commentary okay.
- Even if you think it’s anonymous, there is something called an IP address that can track where the post was published. Meaning, you can be found pretty easily.
- You can be held responsible both legally and at your school site for using social media incorrectly. (Depending on what you have posted)
- Social media is wonderful, when used responsibly and safely. Remember that your behavior (face-to-face or online) is important.
