Safer Internet Day (SID) started as an initiative and has grown into a landmark event. Forming in Europe, the Insafe organization has grown above and beyond its original geographic zone and now celebrates in more than 100 countries worldwide, across all continents.
Striving to address an emerging online issue each year, Insafe has shed light on topics such as cyber-bullying and social networking. This year, SID 2015 focuses on “Let’s create a better Internet together”.
The idea is that no matter what language you speak or what country you call home, we all face issues brought forth by the Internet. As our children become emerged in the culture and effects of technology, cyber safety becomes increasingly important.
Last year, the Unites States SID Committee launched the, “One Good Thing Campaign” in hope of encouraging people of all ages to share one good thing they’ve seen or experienced to “make the Internet a better place or the world a better place with the help of the Internet and social media.” Great Plains Communications challenges you to take part in Safer Internet Day by posting One Good Thing or just talking to your children about Internet safety. The World Wide Web is just that, a connection between us all. Let’s create a better Internet together.
