Safer Internet Day

February 8 is the Safer Internet Day, a special day to promote safer and moreresponsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world.

We all know that Internet nowadays has been used by many people, including childrens. All materials are widely available on the Internet, including non-consumeable materials, such as porn, drugs, and many more. All of those are threats to childrens whom mostly don't understand about it. They will become a victim of those threats.

That's why Insafe promotes this event annually and it has been working since 2007 and we hope that they will keep promoting this event in the future years. In 2010 Safer Internet Day was celebrated through over 500 events in 65 countries all over the world.

The topic for 2011 is "our virtual lives" around the slogan " It's more than a game, it's your life". To help you with this year's topic, they have uploaded a short video about it
