Texting,

What is texting?

Texting is when you send a message from your mobile phone to someone else's mobile phone. This can also happen if you send a message from a computer to another computer or phone.

Keeping safe

Texting and sending pictures to friends can be a fun way of sharing, but you need to know how to keep safe. Once you have sent a text or picture you can no longer control who has it or what people do with it, so be sure that you are comfortable with people seeing what you send. If any one sends you a nasty or bad text or asks you to take a nasty photo, then you should tell your parent or teacher straight away.

Remember, you are in control until you send something. ALWAYS make sure you ask yourself 'Do I want people to see this?' .
