- Are we typing smart?
- Are we posting wisely?
Well, today, I’m going to ask myself that. And the answer:
But hey, the U.S. Postal Service, in cooperation with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, wants you to be SMRT. But not smart enough to know how to spell SMART, apparently. Their 2 SMRT 4 U campaign (which has been around for a while now, I know) is aimed at all those emotional teen girls who post their thoughts and undies online for all to see:
Having your own webpage or blog and using IM may put you in touch with all of your friends. But it could also put you in touch with online predators and cyberbullies. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children have come together to give you the tools to help protect yourself online. 71% of teens receive messages online from someone they don’t know. Would you know what to do?
Once you get past the pink color scheme, the tug-on-your-heartstrings videos, the inspirational female model, the girl-power slogans, and the utterly sex-biased theme of the entire thing (as if guys don’t blog or use Facebook!), ask yourself:
Are you SMRT? Are you on the lookout for those cyberbullies? We here at Wesleying hope so.
