STAY CYBER SAFE
• If you decide to meet a date you’ve locked cyber-eyes with, always meet them in a public place, make sure you’ve told a friend where you are, and text your friend afterwards so you can let them know you’re safe (and then hold a debrief, obvs). If you’re nervous beforehand, ask your friend for a ride so you can do a drive-by first. • Be wary of people trying to use you in their game of catfish. If someone you’re already friends with on Face- book requests to add you, contact your real friend immediately and report the imposter page. This is becoming a lot more common, so keep an eye out. • If you experience bullying online, share your concerns with others. Netsafe is a website where you can seek help and report issues. There are also anonymous hotlines you can call, including What’s Up ( 0800 942 8787) and Lifeline ( 0800 543 354).
