We can't control everything on the Internet but we can project content which reflects who we are.

TIPS: Trends, Issues, Prevention and be Smart
Cyber BYTES
The online world is real life. Consider what you do online as standing in front of a crowded classroom.
Start a positive digital footprint:

Make a commitment to yourself to be kind online and not take part in negative behaviour. 

Highlight only positive content online. 

Write politely to those you meet online.

Remember to type thank you and please.

Don’t promote (like, respond, share or repost) hostile and negative material. 

Don’t write what you dislike-only post positive content.

 

Tips to be kind

Treat others how you want to be treated. 

Keep it friendly. Be patient with others online. 

Answer directly and plainly when responding. 

Keep it friendly and calm.

 

Understand that your words may be read (comprehended) multiple ways.

Acknowledge others and be supportive by making positive comments. 

 

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. In this respect, there is no difference with your online world and real life.
