 SAFETY GUIDELINES  
 

Please be aware that TWYA has no control over the identity or actions of the individuals who are members of the Website or blogs, and that we request that our users exercise caution and good judgment when using the Website. We have compiled a list of basic safety guidelines below. We encourage you to browse additional safety resources as well, and to review the terms of service.

General Safety Guidelines
Excerpted from http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/tech/tec14.shtm
  • Think about how different sites work before deciding to join a site. Some sites will allow only a defined community of users to access posted content; others allow anyone and everyone to view postings.
  • Think about keeping some control over the information you post. Consider restricting access to your page to a select group of people, for example, your friends from school, your club, your team, your community groups, or your family.
  • Keep your information to yourself. Donít post your full name, Social Security number, address, phone number, or bank and credit card account numbers ó and donít post other peopleís information, either. Be cautious about posting information that could be used to identify you or locate you offline. This could include the name of your school, sports team, clubs, and where you work or hang out.
  • Make sure your screen name doesnít say too much about you. Donít use your name, your age, or your hometown. Even if you think your screen name makes you anonymous, it doesnít take a genius to combine clues to figure out who you are and where you can be found.
  • Post only information that you are comfortable with others seeing ó and knowing ó about you.
  • Remember that once you post information online, you canít take it back. Even if you delete the information from a site, older versions exist on other peopleís computers.
  • Consider not posting your photo. It can be altered and broadcast in ways you may not be happy about.
  • Flirting with strangers online could have serious consequences. Because some people lie about who they really are, you never really know who youíre dealing with.
  • Be wary if a new online friend wants to meet you in person. Before you decide to meet someone, do your research: Ask whether any of your friends know the person, and see what background you can dig up through online search engines. If you decide to meet them, be smart about it: Meet in a public place, during the day, with friends you trust. Tell friends or family where youíre going, and when you expect to be back.
  • Trust your gut if you have suspicions. If you feel threatened by someone or uncomfortable because of something online, tell an adult you trust and report it to the police and the social networking site. You could end up preventing someone else from becoming a victim.
