  18. 18. Helpful Definitions <ul><li>Blog </li></ul><ul><li>An online public journal, a blog can also be an avenue for users to “talk” about particular interest areas like hobbies, or music. Teens often use blogs to talk about every day activities. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Online Community </li></ul><ul><li>A membership within a Website where members communicate via email, message boards or chat functions. Many communities are grouped by common interests, such as cheerleading or favorite musicians. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>Social Networking </li></ul><ul><li>Web sites allowing users, including teens, to stay connected to current friends and make new friends. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Chat - Real-time text conversation between users in a chat room with no expectation of privacy. All chat conversation is accessible by all individuals in the chat room while the conversation is taking place. </li></ul><ul><li>Instant Messages - Private, real-time text conversation between two users in a chat room. </li></ul><ul><li>Internet Relay Chat (IRC) - Real-time text conversation similar to public and/or private chat rooms on COS. </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>Public Chat Rooms - Created, maintained, listed and monitored by the COS and other public domain systems such as Internet Relay Chat. A number of customers can be in the public chat rooms at any given time, which are monitored for illegal activity and even appropriate language by systems operators (SYSOP). Some public chat rooms are monitored more frequently than others, depending on the COS and the type of chat room. Violators can be reported to the administrators of the system (at America On-line they are referred to as terms of service [TOS]) which can revoke user privileges. The public chat rooms usually cover a broad range of topics such as entertainment, sports, game rooms, children only, etc. </li></ul>

  24. 24. HOW TO CHECK YOUR COMPUTER’S HISTORY The history provides a list of the websites that have been viewed from your computer. For safety reasons, we recommend that parents review their computer’s history to stay informed of the places their children visit online. (If the history is consistently empty, it is possible that either your child is deliberately erasing the history to keep you from finding out where they go online, or perhaps your computer is set up to automatically delete the history each time you exit out of the Internet. We advise that you disable the auto-delete feature). To check your computer’s history, follow these steps: · Find the long narrow box (called a Navigation Bar) at the top of the screen where web addresses can be entered. · To the right of this box, is a little drop down menu with an arrow. By clicking on the arrow, you can see a list of the different websites that have been viewed from your computer. · AOL automatically saves the last 300 places visited. · Internet Explorer can be customized to report a list of the places visited in the last 999 days. · After you view all the entries in your computer’s history, you can clear it.

  26. 26. The FBI Internet Safety Tips <ul><li>#1 Never give out personal information </li></ul><ul><li>#2 Never write to someone who makes you feel uncomfortable. </li></ul><ul><li>#3 Never meet someone or have them visit you without your parents permission </li></ul><ul><li>#4 Tell a trusted adult right away if you read or see anything on the internet that makes you feel uncomfortable. </li></ul><ul><li>#5 Remember that people on line may not be who they say they are. </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>1. Encourage your kids to share their Internet experiences with you. Enjoy the Internet along with your children. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Teach your kids to trust their instincts. If they feel nervous about anything online, they should tell you about it. </li></ul><ul><li>3. If your kids visit chat rooms, use instant messaging (IM) programs , online video games, or other activities on the Internet that require a login name to identify themselves, help them choose that name and make sure it doesn't reveal any personal information about them. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Insist that your kids never give out your address, phone number, or other personal information, including where they go to school or where they like to play. </li></ul><ul><li>Teach your kids that the difference between right and wrong is the same on the Internet as it is in real life. </li></ul>More helpful tips to improve Web Safety
  28. 28. More helpful tips to improve Web Safety (cont.) <ul><li>6. Show your kids how to respect others online. Make sure they know that rules for good behavior don't change just because they're on a computer. </li></ul><ul><li>7. Insist that your kids respect the property of others online. Explain that making illegal copies of other people's work—music, video games, and other programs—is just like stealing it from a store. </li></ul><ul><li>8. Tell your kids that they should never meet online friends in person. Explain that online friends may not be who they say they are. </li></ul><ul><li>9. Teach your kids that not everything they read or see online is true. Encourage them to ask you if they're not sure. </li></ul><ul><li>10. Control your children's online activity with advanced Internet software. Parental controls can help you filter out harmful content, monitor the sites your child visits, and find out what they do there. </li></ul>
