The Internet is a Jungle

The Internet is a great way to search and find information that you need, but be careful. Once you search for information it also gets info from you at the same time. Search engines like Google and other ones will record what you have searched for and use that information to sell to advertisers so that they will show ads relevant to your interest and searches.

Things to Remember

You are Always Being Monitored

You are constantly being monitored in any activity you do. Either you search on a search engine site like Google. So be careful what words you type the people watching will immediately report you if you typed in words that are illegal and be surprised that you will be on an online public watch list that you don't know about.
Try searching out your full name if you are worried about being on a watch list or someone is defaming you or ruining your reputation under your name. Your Internet service provider also knows the websites you visit and your activities live while you go around and explore the world of the Internet.

Avoid Bullies or Being a Bully

Usually those who have the nerve to bully are those with a fake name or uses a weird user name to hide their identities. They also have a different picture that is not their real face or use a cartoon or anything others than a picture of a real person. Avoid those kind of people online. If you bully someone you will be reported without you knowing it and can have your e-mail account investigated. But if you are the one being bullied online don't comment back just report them to the authorities online or else they will keep writing harsh insensitive words back at you and you will just feel be left heartbroken or psychologically hurt.

Be Careful In Chat Rooms

Chat Rooms maybe a good place to start a conversation but there are people there who have a bad intention and can lie or groom you to gain your trust. Chatters can pretend to be what they are not, hide their age and true identities. So you have to be careful sharing information to strangers that you don't even know in person. Corrupt Authorities also set traps on chat rooms especially when you are old, they can pretend to be a minor and tempt you to say things that you should not write on the chat. They will abuse their authority and investigate your e-mail and put you on a watch list without you knowing.
