Strathclyde Police Online Safety Campaign




You wouldn’t give a stranger lots of personal information in the real world, so it shouldn’t be any different online – and a new campaign by Strathclyde Police explains why.


Social networking is a huge part of most young people’s lives. When used properly it’s a great way to socialise, catch up with friends and let people know what you’ve been up to.


However, it has also become a bit of a social networking competition among young people to have the most popular page, with many of you trying to outdo friends by having more ‘followers’ or ‘friends’ than they do on Facebook or Twitter. But this is where the danger lies – you need to be careful about who you interact with.


You’ve probably heard of ‘grooming’, which is when adults chat to young people online and pretend to be a lot younger than they really are. Unfortunately it’s really easy for criminals and groomers to create false social networking profiles. They can then try to build friendships, trick you into meeting them or even encourage you to do things you wouldn’t normally do.


A new campaign from Strathclyde Police raises awareness of the risks associated with social networking. It’ll encourage you to think about who you’re speaking to online and the information that you’re posting. Exactly who are speaking to? Are they who they say they are? Who are you sharing your information/pictures with? Are you giving too much information away? Without realising it, your content could end up in the wrong hands and you could become a target for online groomers.


Check out our campaign film below to see why online safety is so important:

We're also working with CEOP (Child Exploitation Online Protection) to ensure you have the information and the resources you need to keep safe online. Check out some great resources and information on its website: www.thinkuknow.co.uk
