  2. Proof read it so you can make sure that you don’t post something that you wouldn’t want to post
  3. You can ask a friend to check on what you do online incase you accidentally post something you didn’t want to post

3. If you could go back in time, is there anything you would do differently online? Think of what type of advice you would pass on to your younger self or other students. How could you go about explaining it to them?
