Facebook and Twitter and Snapchat, oh my!
Many social media pages are being used by the youth of our country to connect with others and represent themselves online. This is not always a good thing. From stalkers tracking your photo to colleges finding embarrassing tweets, there is a lot that could go wrong on these sites.
As the internet grows and plays a bigger part in everyone’s lives, it is essential to learn how to protect ourselves from the dangers it can bring. Katie L. Greer, an expert in internet and social media safety, came to the high school last Wednesday to lecture the students on how to keep themselves safe online.
Meeting with the middle school and high school students in the morning and then concerned parents at night, Greer gave advice to all who would listen.
After the presentation, senior student Luana Lima said “It was informative and I think it scared at least one kid into being more safe online.”
The event was sponsored by the Rockland Education Foundation and Rockland School Resource Officer Ethan Schnabel who worked to make the event a reality.
