Internet Safety - Social Media Madness

That’s a very good philosophy…

…especially when it comes to social media!

Social media is filled with a wide variety of things that will ignite your curiosity! BUT, it is ALSO filled with traps and scams so use common sense when tapping on links.

Never tap on “too good to be true” offers, highly exaggerated headlines or warnings, or any suspicious sounding link. 

Basically, 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.
