Explanation of Internet Safety Guidelines - 1. People can save what is said online. This means that is you say something that you meant at the time, but the next day you don't mean it, and decide to delete off your blog or site, it does not mean that it is permanently deleted and taken off the internet, because people can save what you said online and post it somewhere else so other people can read. So don;t post anything your going to regret. 2. Only say what you are willing to say in person. So basically don't say anything you wouldn't say to someones face, online. Just because you can't see the person when you tell them something online, it doesn't mean that their feelings can't get hurt. 3. Don't be "stalk worthy". What that  is, is don't give out personal information like, phone number, address, last name. Don't put things online that someone could use to follow you or stalk you. 4. Tell an adult if you are in an uncomfortable situation online. This means that if you think you are in danger or are just uncomfortable online, tell an adult so that they can help you get out of the uncomfortable situation. 5. Make sure your parents know what sites you are going on. So when you get on a new site that you have never been on before, tell your parents so that they can check out the site and make sure that it is approriate for you. 6. Don't open things from people you don't know. So if you get an email or a message online from someone you don't know, or you don't recognize the email address, don't open, just delete it because it could be something that can send a virus to your computer, or it could also be something inappropriate. 7. Don't show obvious signs of where you live, etc. Definitley do not put your address out on the internet, but also don't reveal any places or locations around your home. 8. Myspace and Facebook are not secure even when private. Don't put anything on sites that you don't want certain people to know. 9. Keep the computer in an open area of the house. Do this so that if you are on a site that you cannot get off of or are having trouble on the computer, your parents can see so that they can help you. 10. Use common sense. Don't do things on the internet that you will later regret. Use the things that your parents have taught you about being nice and safe, and use them on the internet.
    Being safe online is very important, make sure that you do not give out any personal information. Being safe online can prevent many bad things from happening, all you have to do is not give out any personal information and stay away from unsafe people and sites.
    The way you can protect your identity is simple, don't give out any personal information and make sure that no one else gives out your personal information.
