Internet Safety Did you know...? Scary Stuff... There have been many serious incidents recently due to lack of safe searching online. Here is one of the incidents that have occurred:

Amanda Todd (British Columbia) committed suicide after being blackmailed and bullied online by an older man. Ways to Protect YOU! Instagram - On this particular networking site you post pictures, some people post pictures of themselves (A.K.A. 'Selfies'!). The best way to protect yourself on Instagram is to ensure that your account is private, which means that only people you allow can see your pics.

Facebook and Twitter - On Facebook and Twitter you can also make your accounts private and not just anyone can view it and get information about you.

Spam and Inappropriate Advertisements - On Google Chrome you can get 'widgets'. One of the widgets is called adblock and it blocks all advertisements for your personal safety. By: Claudia & Kathryn Bibliography "Kids on the Net: Eleven- and Twelve-Year-Olds." MediaSmarts. @MediaSmsrts, n.d. Web. 28 Apr. 2013. *Most teenagers, spend up to 30 hours on the internet per week.

*About 40% of canadians take part in a social networking site.

*Facebook currently has about 7,000,000 Canadians registered onto the site, it is by far the most popular social networking site in Canada. INTERNET The internet is a great tool, for many things: the ability to contact friends - close, or distant, researching, playing games, etc. But, we have to be careful about what we do on the internet, serious things can happen.

Addiction to internet/electronic device
Social "stalkers" (people keeping track of where you live, looking at every post, every picture, etc.) *A very large amount (75%) of preteens who have email receive spam, sometimes including inappropriate content for adolescent viewers. Interesting Facts continued... What does it mean to be "internet safe?" Being internet safe means not exposing yourself through social media, not giving anyone that you do not personally know any private information about yourself. But should internet be... banned?? Our opinion is no, of course not! The internet is such a powerful tool to everyone, and if we got rid of it, it would have a HUGE impact on our society. Is it really an "addiction?" Some people say no, internet can not result in an addiction, because it does not result in physical symptoms but the internet can actually result in MENTAL symptoms, such as the need to use it, and attachment. Thank you for listening to our presentation on INTERNET SAFETY!!!! Half of 11 and 12-year-olds are unsupervised on the net. Although, parents do not realize that this particular age group is the most targeted for pedophiles. Did you know...?
