Search for your username on the Twitter homepage to find out what other people are saying about you! Hopefully it’s all good. If not, you can block those people from following you or direct messaging you! (or talk to Twitter owners)
You can control your privacy on Twitter by clicking on “Settings.”
Click on “Notices” so that you find out when people are following you or direct messaging you. This way you can remove the people you don’t want following you. Or better: protect your tweets!
Do not reveal your location. Your real friends know where you are. Protect your “tweets” so that only trusted friends can follow you.
The Lock means you’ve “protected your tweets.” This is a great Twitter privacy setting.
If you’ve “Protected Your Tweets,” people will have to request to follow you. Block people you don’t know in person.
If you see followers on your profile that you do not want following you, you can remove them by “Blocking” them. Block people you don’t know.
In MySpace, click on “My Account” to maintain your privacy settings.
Click on the “Privacy” tab to fix your privacy settings. Your birthday and location are sensitive pieces of information. It’s nice for your friends to wish you an online “Happy Birthday,” but it’s nicer to be safe!
Adjust your settings so that only your friends can see your info!
Remember to customize your MySpace Instant Messaging (IM) settings as well!
Rating people is a type of cyber-bullying! Don’t do it!
This person is a male named Sonia with a sunset for a picture. Seems nice (or a little strange), but it could be dangerous! Don’t ever try to “meet” someone unless you know them in person.
Again, don’t give your email address book information to social networks. Your email contacts should remain private. It will be embarrassing when your grandmother gets an email invitation from you to join you on “Hi5.”
