Internet Safety Talk

On the 20th of October, we had an internet safety talk with Bank of Ireland. They started off the talk by asking questions about social media and then showed us graphs which showed the average amount of time people spend online. The top apps included Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram which was expected. They then started talking to us about how we display far too much personal information online about ourselves. They then showed us this commercial advert done by Starbucks which showed by just saying your name can render people to find out so much about you in the space of 3o seconds. They also talked about internet scams and how to avoid them. They said that Facebook is very popular for these scams and we should do our best to be alert and avoid them.
