Internet Safety - Social Media Madness

Well social media IS a very curious “world!”

And you will find a wide variety of things that will ignite your curiosity!

BUT, social media is ALSO filled with traps and scams so use common sense when tapping on links.

Don’t tap on “too good to be true” offers, highly exaggerated headlines or warnings, or any suspicious sounding link. 

If it sounds or feels like a “trap,” trust your gut!

And if you get a suspicious sounding message or link FROM A FRIEND through social media, it’s best not to automatically click it. Your friend’s account may have been hacked, which could cause everyone in their contacts list to receive spam.

If you’re not sure it’s spam, try contacting that person another way to ask if they meant to send you a link recently.
