    Today we have to be careful in internet, because if you accept people
    who do not know, they can harass you, and the first solution is it to be said to your parents.

    You can be the person that you are not in real life, so very people use internet for that, and to much parents are not worried for the webs where their kids log in.. even i know some “sectas” in internet.. Internet only is it safe if you want

    we have to be careful with the internet because in the web are dangerous people. the best thing that we can do if we have any problem whit the internet is say it to our parents.

  4. I didn’t have any bad experience with Internet, I chat only with my friends or family. My cousin buys things in other countries in Internet, and more than once he paid the product and it never arrived. I also buy in Internet, but I’ve never had any problems. However, I think that Internet is very important in our life, because it can help us to find information and in a future it can find us a good job.

    I think we must be careful because it can be very dangerous and sober all there to give personal information and talking to strangers and if something happens to tell the parents.

    I think it depends on each person because it’s stupid to be presented to a meeting without having known him before, or leave your mobile no that’s normal at least I do not.

  10. I like the video because with this video you can see the problem of internet and you can detective the problem of the social network .
    Caution with this problem and the people how do that

  11. Marta Godínez (L) says:

    I think a person is smart enough to know that phone numbers, card, where you live so you should not tell anyone, much less the Internet, and if you have any problems you should do what it says on the video is tell your parents and then to the police.

    Hi teacher,in the video of Lost Princess, I think that it occours to every people everyday, and it’s not so bad for that the parents haved got to call the police. In the video it’s so dramatic. Bullyng occour to a lot of people in the world. Well, in concret the case of Keigen i think’s don’t have anything to see with the others case of bulyng. 🙂
