i like to introduce a website which you can be a member and get two free rings from United states.I don't think that the rings would be valuable but that was really interesting when i took part in their program and give my address(even not exactly!) but i received a postal pack having these two rings exactly in my address. how far it is!! iran to america..!
and now i should try to spread "internet safety" specially for girls as a member!
"having your own weblog and using messengers may put you in touch with all of your friends .but it could also put you in touch with online predators and cyber bullies. The U.S. postal inspection service and the national center for missing and exploited children have come together to give you the tools to help protect yourself online.
and the rings are like the string around your finger where it's just a little reminder everyday when you look down at it and go, i like myself. i want to be around. i want to keep myself safe.
WHAT TO TYPE
Be smart. If you don’t use privacy settings, anyone has access to your blog or profile, not just people you know.
· Post your cell phone number, address, or the name of your school
· Post your friends’ names, ages, phone numbers, school names, or addresses
· Add people as friends to your site unless you know them in person
· Communicate with people you don’t know
· Give out your password to anyone other than your parent or guardian
· Meet in person with anyone you first “met” on a social networking site
· Respond to harassing or rude comments posted on your profile
· Make or post plans and activities on your site
· Post photos with school names, locations, license plates, or signs
· Post photos with the name of your sports team
· Post sexually provocative photos
· Respond to threatening or negative emails or IMs
· Check the privacy settings of the social networking sites that you use
· Set privacy settings so that people can only be added as your friend if you approve them
· Set privacy settings so that people can only view your profile if you have approved them as a friend
· Remember that posting information about your friends could put them at risk
· Consider going through your blog and profile and removing information that could put you at risk
· Delete any unwanted messages or friends who continuously leave inappropriate comments
· Report comments to the networking site if they violate that site’s terms of service
· Save or print questionable activity and include date and time
· Tell your parents or guardian if anything happens online that makes you feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused
WHEN TO TELL
Trust Your Intuition: Always go with your gut feeling, and if something doesn't feel right to you or a friend, report it. You can help stop the online victimization of youth.
BE CAUTIOUS OF
· Anyone you don't know who asks you for personal information, photos or videos
· Unsolicited obscene material from people or companies you don't know
· Misleading URLs on the Internet that point you to sites containing harmful materials rather than what you were looking for
· Anyone who wants to send you photos or videos containing obscene content of youth 18 and younger (The possession, manufacturing, or distributing of child pornography is illegal.)
· Anyone you don't know who asks you to meet them somewhere offline (If the person is an adult this is illegal and they can be charged with a criminal offense called Online Enticement.)
· Threats to your life or safety
· Threats to others"
