Be Deadly Online - social networking boy with smartphone

Social media and privacy

Social networking sites like Facebook or Instagram can be real deadly fun!

Share language, find friends, track down family, yarn with mates.

But some people think it’s trouble. Yep – it can be. But like most things, if you treat it right and get it right, it’s good.

Getting it right

Once you share a pic or a video or post, it’s out for everyone to see. Anyone can copy it. You’ve just lost control of your digital footprint! But everyone can be safer and smarter about it, hey?

Make good choices, make your mob proud.

There's a lot of pride in our community – it's good to share our stories and pics.
