Let's stamp out social media abuse and create a better internet together
On Tuesday 9th February 2016, millions across the UK and globally will be celebrating Safer Internet Day. Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the day is a great opportunity to talk to your family and friends about the safe and positive use of technology, and to 'share a heart' to help create a kinder online community.
This year's theme is 'Play your part for a better internet' and provides a great opportunity for everyone to explore the responsibility we all have to help create a kinder online community.
Safer Internet Day is supported by the Premier League and the Football Association, and hundreds of schools and organisations right across the UK, as well as celebrities and sports stars.
Visit the UK Safer Internet Centre website (www.saferinternet.org.uk
) where you can take the quiz, see what's happening for the day, and find out more about what you can do to help keep your friends and family safer online.
