You might writesomething that you don’t mean, but it could be harming someone else’s feelings and everyday lives.
Access You must remember when using the internet that everyone can access it. Everyone can see what you’ve done!When you are writing something to someone else, you may be offending someone, or their culture and religion. Do not write or blog something bad about someone as everyone has access to all social sites.

DONOT use text language, try not to use caps lock either people could take it the wrong way!
CommerceWhen buying and selling items on the internet you must be careful who you are doing business with.Remember that the world is big and there are many jerks out therewho are looking for us kids and will break the law and steal things off us.That is why many of these sites have age restrictions such as TradeMe. Make sure that you obey all of them.
Literacy These days, many people are now in e-learning classes.This means that there may be many younger people on the internet. The intermediates are the older, more responsible internet users, therefore you must not be silly on social sites and set a great example for the not as experienced internet users.
EtiquetteWe all are allowed to write what we feel, but when you do, you must understand that you have full credit and responsibility for your actions.E.g. If you write that you are 11 years old but are on a restricted 13 years of age site, the heat is on your parents. If it is your account that you made it is your job to use the correct actions.
Rights and Responsibilities It is our responsibility to look after the internet and its users byfollowing all Terms and Conditions and setting a good example for future internet users. We all have individual rights, but all of us also have the same rights, such as freedom of speech and a right to have personal space and privacy.
