  • Kate’s Reputation Problem: Kate doesn’t get a job she wanted because of a video her would-be employer saw on the web.
  • Is Kate a Web Addict?: Kate’s experience shows that the amount of time kids should spend online isn’t black & white (even though the video is!).

Ad Council’s Beware What You Share campaign

The Ad Council’s Internet Safety Coalition has developed a creative campaign for teaching kids to ‘Beware What You Share,’ by likening an online post to something worn on a shirt the next day. The materials remind teens that online actions can have real world consequences.
