Safer Schools Together (January 2023)

1. What if the show was not Truth Be Told, but something else? Would it make a difference what Iliana posted?

It would effect Iliana’s post by making it look less like a personal blog but just self centered girl that loves to talk about herself, it could also make it seem that she puts herself in front of everyone else.

And if it wasn’t for a job application she probably wouldn’t had even done it, she would even see it as a waste of her time.

Is it important that Iliana represent herself truthfully online? Why or why not? Are there other situations where it wouldn’t matter if she represented herself untruthfully?

If it was for a job application it would be important for her to represent herself and her skills truthfully as it could effect her future employment.

It could give other people the wrong idea about her which could make people upset when they do find out that she was not honest.

Dishonesty leads to a bad reputation which does more harm than good.

Do you think social media has a positive influence on our lives? Why or why not?

Social media was positives and negative influences on our lives, because the things posted on it are controlled by the people using it.

I believe social media does not have a positive influence in our lives especially when you dont know how to use it properly.

Younger users of social media don’t think the same way as adults when they use it. Things like insecurities, online bullying, and exposure to other unwanted things are bound to exist on the internet for adults and kids.
