In honor of #saferinternetday I wanted to take a second to promote my pageant platform: CyberSmartz. There is no question that we live in a digital world. Our technology allows friends to connect from all over the world and maintain relationships from a distance. However, there is also a dark side. Unfortunately, there are those who use this tool for selfish purposes and to promote harm and negativity. In today’s culture, we have everything from rampant cyberbullying, extreme FOMO, and loss of attention span, to human trafficking, online grooming, sexting and child pornography.
If you use social media, you have an obligation to yourself and to others to understand the basic principles of digital media privacy and protection. For instance, understanding the ramifications of your digital footprint, understanding COPPA Laws, and helpful tactics to cleaning up your personal brand.
If you, your school, team, organization, non-profit, or family wants to know more information regarding this topic you can join my Facebook group <<CyberSmartz: Protecting yourself in a Digital World>> for weekly info videos on this topic.
If you are interested in having @missomaha2018 come speak at your school, organization, event, or group feel free to contact me by dm, email, phone, or messenger.
SOCIAL MEDIA TIP:
Not every part of your private life needs to be public.
