BE CAU­TIOUS ON­LINE

Bona - - Front Page -

The main pur­pose of Face­book is to con­nect with peo­ple we know in real life, and that’s the idea Mark Zucker­berg had when cre­at­ing this so­cial me­dia tool. The sad thing is that crim­i­nals use it for evil in­ten­tions. Fake ac­counts are be­ing used to scam in­no­cent peo­ple. Don’t as­sume that the per­son on the pro­file pic­ture is who you are chat­ting to. It’s com­mon these days for peo­ple to cre­ate ac­counts us­ing other peo­ple’s pic­tures. Be safe on­line, don’t ac­cept friend re­quests from strangers, and don’t send re­quests to strangers.
