Identity theft of minors is a growing problem; it is more difficult to detect and resolve than an adult’s because it is often not discovered until significant damage is done. Social Media Be safe.

5 Presentation Title BE SAFE – How to Protect Yourself Use the least amount of information necessary to register for and use the site or app. Vary your passwords and change them regularly. Never post your phone #, social security #, driver’s license #, student ID #, or your address. Do not connect with people you do not know, even if they are a friend of a friend. Turn off GPS locator on cell phones to prevent GEO tagging your photographs. Use the highest level of privacy settings that the site allows. Do not settle for the default settings. Social Media Be safe. Be smart.

6 Presentation Title BE SMART – Purpose & Privacy Know each platform’s purpose & privacy settings and use them appropriately. Facebook – keep private, limit access to family/friends; understand that your friends’ pages also disseminate your information Twitter – great tool for networking and sharing information; tricky mix of personal and professional; privacy tools exist but are not foolproof LinkedIn – purely professional use; may not have a profile here yet, but as you enter workforce this is a great resource; no personal posts Instagram – 90% of users are 35 or younger, which makes this a highly attractive platform for apparel, entertainment and media brands (i.e. targeted advertising) Social Media Be safe. Be smart.

7 Presentation Title The best way to insure no one sees something embarrassing is to never post it to begin with. BE SMART – Nothing posted is ever fully private “Sometimes people confuse social media with Las Vegas. They believe that their words and actions are contained on social media. They are shocked when something they posted on Facebook nine months ago is brought up in a job interview. They are surprised when something mean they posted gets back to the person they posted about.” - Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author Social Media Be safe. Be smart.

8 Presentation Title BE SMART – Who’s Watching? Social Media Be safe. Be smart. College admissions – An estimated 25-30% routinely check social media profiles of applicants; others report checking online profiles if application seems too good to be true or if a student is “on the bubble” for admission.

13 Presentation Title BE SMART – Digital Don’ts Do not use profanity or vulgar language. Do not allude to it. Retweeting, liking or favoriting posts with profanity is the same as using it yourself. Don’t engage in an argument online. Avoid opinionated topics, especially around politics and religion. Things that are said in private settings should stay there – don’t share them online. Multiple mentions of the same business could be construed as endorsement, which is prohibited according to NCAA legislation. Do not post pictures of behavior or settings that may be interpreted as questionable. Show NCSA Athletic Recruiting video from 2:39-4:50: Social Media Be safe. Be smart.

14 Presentation Title BE SMART – Digital Do’s Stay positive. Use social media to your advantage. Be a brand advocate for yourself. Show your personality; post the why not the what. Spelling and grammar matter, so check yourself and use abbreviations and internet slang sparingly. Carefully consider possible repercussions of what you post before you post. Would you say it in front of a college admissions officer or a future employer? Social Media Be safe. Be smart.
