We should know our actions on the Web could affect people all around the world as well as in our real life
The Publishing guidelines require responsible use for personal information, personal works, photos, and videos from every member of the community. It includes examples of what we can do and cannot do, and what rights we have. We are all responsible for the content of the pages and comments we publish and are expected to follow by the high standards of responsibility.
Before you publish your works or comments on the Web think and reflect on the following questions
1. Would your grandmother want to see that? Is that photo, video, or comment appropriate for a wide public audience: your future husband, your future child, your future employer? Remember, what goes online can stay online forever.
2. Do you really think thatʼs private? Donʼt publish personal information (last names, birthdays, phone numbers, etc.). Just because it says itʼs private, doesnʼt mean it canʼt be republished by someone else.
3. Would you say that to someoneʼs face? If you donʼt have something nice to say, donʼt say anything at all. Portray yourself, your peers and your community in a positive light.
4. Is that your work to publish? How would you feel if someone stole your work and said it was theirs? Have you credited the original owner? Have you licenced it so someone else can use it?
5. What if someone published a photo like that of you? Donʼt publish media of others in a light you wouldnʼt want published of yourself. If your not sure, donʼt post.
