I have 3 As and 3 Bs, but I think I'm good digital citizen because I have different passwords and I always think about posting things online.

I think we should not pay attention to our style and share every private information while using social media.

Well. I think I'm a good digital citizen. I don't swear others online, I think carefully before posting something. In fact, I seldom use social media.

I think I'm not really a good digital citizen, but I'm also not a bag digital citizen. I usually think carefully about what I am saying and doing online. I also follow my country's online rules. However, I think I have a problem. I share my personal information on public websites. I also often post many photos and videos on Facebook or Instagram. I think I will limit that.

For me, I don’t really think myself a good digital citizen. I often share photos and I do believe my close online friends. I guess I need to change that before it’s getting worse.

I never share personal information on public websites such as FB, Instagram because there are lots of hackers or robbers and they may use your personal infor for bad purposes.

I think I’m a good digital citizen. My answers were As and Bs. But I know a person who is too nervous and unsettled to use digital tools in a sensible way. For example if she finds something new (a webpage, an app ) she doesn’t make an effort to learn it and she gets fed up. She isn’t very careful about privacy settings and passwords – she uses the same password to all her accounts. If something goes wrong she gets very angry and she gives it up. How can I help her? Any ideas? ( this is my mum )
