Technology Tips for Teens

  • Always think before you post something on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or text something to your friends. Any pictures or text messages posted circulate and you can’t take them down.
  • When buying a new phone or computer save all your warranties. The warranty states how many years from the time you bought it and can get your items fixed or replaced. So keep your receipts.
  • Always unplug your devices. If you leave your cell phone on 24/7 it will cause wear and tear on the battery. Turning your phone off for a little while can save you from having to change the battery.
  • Always log out, and sign off when using computers, or other sites that you need passwords. You don’t wan’t a stranger or friend seeing what you posted.
  • Keep track of your passwords with all your email accounts, library card pins, website usernames. Make a list and write them down someplace safe.
  • Know the difference of different types of websites. So when you are looking things up for school look for domain names ending in:
    • .org = official organizations
    • .edu = educational (universities, research centers)
    • .gov = government
    • .com or .net = commercial sites
