  1. Dear 5M,

    People can make smart choices online by not posting personal information. They could also not post any pictures or comments to do with where they are or where they are going. This BTN story has helped me understand more clearly about online networks by telling me that there are people looking at everyone’s every move.

  4. Dear 5M,
    People can make smart choices online when they know what they are getting themselves into.

    I understand how serious hacking is because they can get your credit-card number.

  6. Dear 5M,
    A smart choice online is if you make an account for example if you had a MSN account a smart choice is to make the account private so not as much informationis shared. I understand that there are more ways for people to breach your privacy.

  7. Dear 5M,

    I think people can make smart choices online by not posting personal information like full names and date of birth. I now understand that people can see everything you do online since watching this BTN episode.
