Internet Safety – Protect Yourself

Everyday the lines between personal and professional become all sorts of gray shades.  Who you are becomes much clearer to everyone you interact with, and those you don’t.  Enter the buzz phrase – “Personal Branding”.  What you are in real life and online is your personal brand.  Great, but you already know that, are hearing more about each day and maybe even creating a personal strategy to implement.

In this vein, I thought it is AWESOME that The Disney Channel is putting “Internet Safety” tips out to its viewers and is getting the young kids exposed to being safe online.  Last night I was watching The Disney Channel with my boys and on came a public service announcement from The Disney Channel in the form of Phineas & Ferb to talk to young viewers about internet safety.

I was unable to locate a video from either The Disney Channel web site or through YouTube but I did find this great link: http://disney.go.com/corporate/privacy/safety.html

Keep being safe and smart!

    That’s what it’s all about. Educating yourself. If you don’t know about these dangers, you’ll never know when you’re stepping into a trap.

    This blew a few friends’ minds: http://kiwicommons.com/2009/10/seven-ways-you-may-be-breaking-the-law/

    Abby – you are absolutely correct about making sure that you are educating yourself. Too many jump into social networking without understanding the reach that it really has.

    The link you attached is fantastic, thank you for sharing!

    Solid blog. I got a lot of effective data. I’ve been following this technology for awhile. It’s interesting how it keeps shifting, yet some of the core factors stay the same. Have you seen much change since Google made their most recent acquisition in the domain?

    Jaylin – thanks for the comment. I haven’t noticed drastic changes but this is an ongoing effort so new efforts are being made daily. I think we will see subtle and slow changes, as to not scare the masses.
