I think I am being a good digital citizen. Most of modern technology I am interested but some of them I hate. I always follow the online's rule, think carefully about what I'm going to say or do or share.

Hi Evil 123! Welcome to LearnEnglish Teens and thanks for your comments. :) Your comment here seems really interesting but some parts are difficult to understand. Can you try to explain your ideas in a really easy, clear way? It is better to use your words (not a translation tool) when you can. We are interested to hear your ideas! Thank you, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

Maybe it's true that people think they are good digital citizens.
But they usually forget about not sharing their personal things. They share things to strangers and get into different kinds of problem. That's bad.
We should also avoid postinf our personal videos or photos. I never posted any of mine on social media. In fact, I don't use social media much. World may consist of good people but bad indiviuals reside here too. Like hackers and others. Some might use our photos and photoshop them. Or worse, us them against us.
So we better avoid taking such steps and be a safe digital citizen.
I reaply acknowleged the fact, Elsa highlighted here.

Me?? Hump!! I don't believe in class difference. Ha ha ha ha. Kidding.
You can see my picture shows "Mulan" - the Disney Princess. She is a brave warrior that defends and protects her territory and country.
So basically I'm a warrior. :)))
Am I answering your question, Elsa? ;)
I hope so.... :D
Stay blessed~!

Previously, I said, "The problems is many of us believe that we are NOT bad digital citizens! :)"
In fact, some people enjoy posting their favourite photos without thinking the other side of the coin for others!
......Stop it!!
Eek!! Disgusting...!

Let's more consider "cause and effect" before posting photos! ✨
