    1. It is true that you can lose important things.
      Difficulties will also be there in the long term.
      Doing something illegal will certainly bring you other consequences.

  2. We are model netizens.

    In a way, someone that is not in the web, doesn't exist in a zone of the world. The net has built a new world that is feeded by the real one, and that backs it up in return. Everybody must be in the web. But, this digital world allows you to create an imagen of yourself that will feed back how people sees you. We should be carefull with what we build about us in the net.

    The digital printfoot is the trace you leave in the net even if you didn't want to. Webs you visit, comments you writte, personal information that you broadcast, lists of interests... All this build an image of you that not always agrees with reality.

    There have been some embarrassing stories about celebrities that developed online. Prince charles and his strip poker game, the local political woman that had seen recently broadcasted in the net a very private video... There has been stories too of harrasment, menaces and other nice stuff. For example, we have this woman, Anita Sarkeesian, a feminist that make films and documentaries about female roles in the medias, than has been menaced, and even her biography in wikipedia was modified with insults for her job. We are getting perhaps out of the question, but here's an example of the power that internet has in a person's public image.

    In the net, the information can not be controled, and we have too much people that uses the anonymity to damage others, somethig they dare not in real life.

    I'm always aware, when I write in the web, to talk like I was in front of someone. So, I will not regret (almost) any word. I never give my personal information: adress, phone or whatever, and I never answer to this messages that promises you some gossip in exchange of your password. Please, I can not believe someone still falls in this trick. In my smarter-than-me phone I don't carry any delicate information or personal pictures. I only send private information if the destinatary is someone I trush very much and I know where he/she sleeps. So he/she will fear my revenge if my trust was misplaced.

    I think the most vulnerable persons to the dangers of internet are the lonely ones. They are so desperate for some attention they will do almost anything to get it. The next more vulnerable are the ones without information of what internet is, and the lack of control you have over the information once you release it.

    I think the risks online and offline are similar, but the net multiplies the effect, for good and bad.

    That's for the dangers of internet. What about resposabilities? I have only a rule: always be polite, never lie, because anything you writte or do in the internet will be observed.

    1. Thanks a bunch for your nice piece of work, Mauge, just read my corrections, below, OK, and keep it up!
