Tip of the week

Q. Is it OK for me to share photos and videos with my friends and family online?

A. It’s important to remember that what you post online can be seen by anyone using the Internet unless the site is secured. When using social media websites check with your friends that their pages are not free to be seen by anyone. It’s good to have high security settings on your pages and on your friends’ pages. There are some good tutorials online on how to set your security settings.
