Protect Yourself While You Network!
Tips on protecting yourself on MySpace, Facebook, Yahoo360, Twitter and other social networking sites!
Both MySpace and Facebook have approximately 115 million monthly users. We feel we are safe on the internet because we are not face to face with others. But there are dangers lurking on social networking sites ranging from identity theft to fraud to sexual predators. Here are a few tips on how to keep yourself protected.
4. Most networking sites give you
the option of requiring a person who is requesting
you as a friend
to type in a word/number code, or to know your last name.
Utilize these options!
5. Be careful with any personal information you
put on your profile, and don't put anything that might
reveal your password! Internet predators are very good
at guessing your passwords, especially if you give them
information they can use. For example, don’t use
the title of your blog or your own name as your password!
10. Be careful what you say online or in emails. Your words are potentially there forever, and may be used against you, even inadvertently. Google your name sometimes. You may be very surprised.
11. Use common sense... your very best defense.
