As user`s of digital technology we have developed a love for the internet, it has brought us many advantages such as social networking sites, we can now keep in touch with family and friends all over the world, we can shop anywhere in the world, pay bills, work collaboratively on homework and projects all this from the touch of a button in the comfort of our own homes! However all this does not come without problems and risks, something that we all need to be aware of, through the use of the internet our identities can be compromised due to all the information that we provide on the internet about ourselves, the family and friends we are befriending do we really know them?, when paying bills and buying online who has access to our information? is it protected?, working with peers on school projects is this really what happening?
The next time that you use the internet ask yourself the question “Are you safe?”.
