Every piece of information that is put online leaves a digital footprint, or "trail," which can be big or small, and helpful or hurtful, depending on how you manage it.
As you grow up you will naturally start to communicate more online. But some of what you see could make you feel hurt, sad, angry, or even scared. It is important to think about the words we use because everyone interprets things differently.
It is important to balance your responsibility to yourself and others in the digital world.
