Safety and the Web

The idea of making your very own webpage and putting it on a server for everybody in the world to see is pretty cool. However, you need to be careful about what kind of information that you put on the web. You should never give out identifying information such as your full name, your home address, your school name, or even your telephone number.

Please take the time and read about the various safety tips about not only making webpages, but also about surfing the web…
