E-SAFETY & SOCIAL MEDIA
We all know the benefits technology brings to our lives, but it can also bring challenges. There’s no need to panic — the best way to manage these are to KNOW what can go wrong and what to do if you get into trouble. Online profiles have become a digital resume — anyone can google your name or check out your social media accounts, including potential employers, universities and others. This means it’s really important that you know what your online reputation looks like and how to fix it if you need to.
