i think it isn't such a good idea to use your  real name
some people might send bad information about us and our name

that's why the British Council site makes us use thing names,for our protection and puts the comments on moderation. :)

  1. You cannot enter your real date of birth, otherwise bad people will pretend they are you.
  2. You cannot enter the details of your house.

3.   Most important rule! Do not go on social websites like Facebook, Google+, Flickr and Pinterest.(if you put your real picture of yourself as a profile picture)

Hope you know now the very important rules about  internet safety

im using iternet toooooo

 yes. we use internet to come on this great website.

don't tell them anything about yourself

 no you can 't give your real name

For me, it isn't a good idea beacouse we don't know who's behind Internet, there may be bad people...


I believe that it is safe to give your real name but NOT your full name.

Here are my tips:
 - Don't give your cellphone number.
 - Don't post personal pictures.
 - Don't say or give your exact location.

That is my top internet safety tips. Goodbye!
