Last week, Detective Chris Singleton of the Smyrna Police Department visited fifth graders at Brown Elementary to discuss the importance of internet safety. Officer Singleton shared valuable tips to help keep students safe while online. “It is extremely important kids are aware of what’s out there and what they can do to remain safe, especially with the popularity of social websites,” said Detective Singleton. Some of the safety tips included:
- Make sure your username does not tell too much about you.
- Things you type can be traced back to you, even if you delete it!
- Only allow ‘friends’ to view your Facebook page- don’t allow ‘friends of friends.’
- If you are being cyberbullied, report it to an adult!
