Are you a FACEBOOK fake?

Facebook says, "How you present yourself on Facebook says a lot about who you are—just like what you say and do at school or with your friends. In all public places, online and off, it’s important to represent yourself as the kind of person you want to be."

So, WHO are YOU?
Take a peek back through the last couple days of your facebook use... how did you portray yourself?

Did you use foul/offensive language?
Did you threaten someone?
Did you post personal information about yourself or someone else?

Now, here's a real meter for how you are portraying yourself...
Think of someone who thinks you are the greatest - a grandmother, the little girl you babysit for, your little sister or the lady from church...
Now. go back and peek at the last couple days of what you have posted... on yours and the walls of your "friends" - would that person think the SAME way about you after reading those posts?

If the answer is "yes" then you are AWESOME at staying TRUE to WHO you ARE!
If the answer is "ugh..not-so-much" then you have a little work to do, some changes to make... maybe even some apologies to take care of.

There is a lot more info on facebook's SAFETY page about how to use facebook RESPONSIBLY!
You should check it out.
Here is a link directly to the SAFETY FOR TEENS page on Facebook. Check it out!
