There are many things that you can do to have fun, AND stay safe while online. Some of todays websites, such as facebook, twitter, onine games, blogs, etc. are very fun and allow you to keep in touch with friends, but, you should always make sure that you put yourself in safety before fun. Some ways you can do this is, only accept friend requests from friends or family you know for sure you can trust. Also if somebody you are friends with start talking bad to you or somebody else, immediately un-friend them and, if it still continues, tell a parent or a responsible adult that you know will do something about it. Also, if you are the one who is posting bad things, saying bad things, posting bad pictures, or bullying people, stop immediately. To you it might not be too mean, but you can severely hurt people without knowing it. To somebody who is getting the messages it is very discouraging and, considered cyber-bullying. Accept that if are a cyber-bully and you do stop, you will still probably get a consequence for it, but, it will no be nearly as bad if you stop now then continue doing it and get caught later on by a parent or adult. Another thing you can do if it gets out of hand is merely, log off, or stop using that acount. The choice is yours. But please, help the fight to stop cyber-bullying.
        Besides all of these negatives about online, there are still posotives to it, otherwise, people wouldn't we interested in it in the first place. While safety comes, first, you can have lots of fun things to do. If you have a blog or social networking account, its a good idea to set a time limit for how long you can be on it. Some people spend all day on there facebook, twitter, etc. accounts. Sharing news is probably the biggest part of online networks, and this is very fun and interesting, if you use it right. Before going onto a new network make sure you have accepted the terms and conditions of the websites before you go out and try to know what you're doing, because, all websites, have some similar, and different terms to them, which is what makes them thereselves and unique.  
        to rap things up, just make sure you are aware of the negatives and posotives of online usage before you get on. And remember, to always, keep yourself safe.
