  • 4. Facebook is great if…<br />You are connecting with friends<br />You are sharing photos of fun events<br />You are posting links to funny sites or videos<br />You are keeping up with family<br />You are aware that everything you post is accessible somehow by anyone in the world<br />You are aware that everything you post will stay on the Internet forever<br />
  • 5. Facebook is not so great if…<br />You are making fun of people<br />You are sharing embarrassing photos or videos of other people<br />You are posting inappropriate links<br />You post things you wouldn’t want your family to see<br />You think that what you post doesn’t matter<br />You think that no one who “matters” will ever see it<br />
  • 6. The Truth Is…<br />Facebook is a megaphone. <br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTN9We8unmU<br />Everything you post is stored on a server somewhere<br />Privacy settings only prevent so much<br />Employers and schools take what you post seriously<br />
  • 7. It only takes a second to post…<br />
  • 8. But the consequences will follow you forever…<br />
  • 9. Close to Home<br />Basketball star in Barneveld, Wisconsin caught underage drinking…<br />Was kicked off the team…<br />Lost a full scholarship…<br />Got kicked out of school for a year…<br />Because photos of the party were posted on Facebook.<br />Student at UW Oshkosh..<br />Applied for a job with troubled youth…<br />Didn’t get the job…<br />Because photos of themselves drinking underage…<br />Were posted on Facebook. <br />Students applying for my internship…<br />

  • 11.
  • 12. YouTube can make you into an overnight celebrity.<br />Which can be good if you are:<br />Susan Boyle<br />The Double Rainbow Guy<br />But it can be bad if you are:<br />This lady: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYdUZdan5i8<br />(She had to go under police protection.)<br />
  • 13. The same problems arise on other social media…<br />
  • 14. How many of you own one of these fun devices? <br />
  • 15. Cell phones + accessibility + reach mass audience + rash decision = regret. <br />
  • 16. Most of these potentially harmful situations can be avoided if you just…<br />
  • 17. You already know how to avoid disastrous situations.<br />If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.<br />Think before you speak.<br />Write or post things you wouldn’t mind seeing 20 years down the road.<br />The best way to keep things private is to keep them to yourself. <br />The whole world doesn’t need to know the ins and outs of your day-to-day life.<br />Don’t talk behind peoples’ backs. There is no such thing.<br />Be aware of your surroundings. You don’t live in a bubble.<br />Be responsible.<br />Behave. <br />It’s better to be safe than sorry. <br />It’s NOT easier to ask forgiveness than permission. You may not have the chance to apologize.<br />
  • 18. Don’t forget…<br />That you can only control yourself.<br />Digital Cameras, Cell phones, FlipCams… Technology is everywhere.<br />You have to make sure that you are careful of your actions OFFLINE as well…<br />It only takes a second for someone to snap a photo you may not realize is online until it’s too late.<br />
