“Don’t believe everything you read, especially on the Internet….”
Gather information about your source to check the validity:
· A group of people trying to gather support for a specific cause?
· A news group announcing the latest events of the day?
· A company doing business on the Internet?
· An organization which provides online games or music?
· Look for a “This site updated on XX/XX/XXXX” message.
· Check the URL for clues
· .com = commercial (This site may want to sell things to you.)
· .edu = educational (Most schools and universities use this.)
· .gov = government (Official state or federal government.)
· .org = organization (May be a group trying to persuade.)
*** Never give your name or address or telephone number to strangers you “meet” on the Internet. This information is usually sold to companies who will telephone you or send junk email (Spam) to try to sell things.
*** Do not fill out surveys that ask you information about your parents or relatives, especially their email addresses. Family information is private, and could be used for inappropriate purposes.
*** If someone you “meet” on the Internet asks to meet you IRL, (in real life), tell your parents immediately. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell if the person you meet in a chat room is really someone your age with similar interests. Bad people sometimes use this method to lure kids into dangerous situations.
