Social Networking

Social networking sites are places online where you can connect with your friends and share videos, music, photos and chat with one another. In order to enjoy using these services there are some key things to remember.

Be careful who you accept as friends as once they are friends they will have access to your content. It is important to realise that not everyone online is reliable and some may lie about who they are in order to find out more about you. Remember that if anyone is aggressive or inappropriate to you online then most social networking sites have a way of allowing you to block or delete the person.
