Hey, guys!

Youtube has a ton of great features and videos, but you need to be careful about what you view, because you could find something very bad (inappropriate, offensive, hateful, ect.). To make this easier to figure out, I created a Dos and Don’ts list below:

Dos:

  • Be careful what you search for
  • Try to research the Youtuber you want to watch (if for the first time)
  • Look for suspicious thumbnails (the picture on the video before you open it)
  • If the title has a number or punctuation symbol instead of a letter, something’s up
  • Click off if you are uncomfortable with what you’re watching
  • Always use common sense

Don’ts:

  • Research inappropriate or offensive words
  • Click on the video anyway even if it’s suspicious
  • Watch a video that you shouldn’t watch when you know it’s bad
  • Look at every video that pops up in the search
  • Do the wrong thing
  • Be careless

Thank you for reading! I really hope you will take my tips into consideration! It will help you a lot with navigating Youtube safely. Sometimes Youtube can be a bad place, but it’s mostly good. You just have to look out for signs. If you do that, you won’t have to worry about getting in a whole lot of trouble (not just your parents)!

See you in my next post!

TEENS RULE THE INTERNET!
