  • If you are looking up something on google, use more words and be specific
  • Remember what you post online is there forever (even if you delete it!)
  • Be aware of what you post online
  • You own the pictures you post on Facebook and Instagram, but they can use them. They can use them worldwide. They can copy them and use them publicly
