Offline Consequences

These teens discuss being smart about what you post on your online profile.

Stuff to Know

  • Stay in control of your online reputation!
  • Don’t post information, photos, or videos you might regret later.
  • Think about your online image (Who will see this? What will they think?)
  • Use privacy settings to limit access to your page; don’t let anyone – not predators or cyberbullies - gain access to information that’s yours.
  • Remember that online choices have offline consequences and in some cases, legal implications.
  • Consider how fast information and images get forwarded to people beyond your group of friends via texting, IM, and e-mail – especially sexually explicit ones.
