10 Things Students Should Never Do on Social Media

Students can get into trouble if they do certain things on social media. Therefore they should be aware of the social media dos and don’ts. Let us take a look at the top 10 things students should never do on social media.

With the present popularity of social media and its consequences which come with great responsibility, it is important for parents to guide their children to follow another set of “don’ts” related to social media. Here are the top 10 things they should never do on social media.


1. Say No to Bullying


 Bullying is a major issue in schools and colleges today. There is something called cyberbully as well, which often leads to depression, violence, and also suicide. Children should never use any hateful words on social media to bully others, whether it is about race, religion, sex, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, etc.


2. Do Not Post Undesirable Activities


Teachers do not check students’ profile – this is a misunderstanding. Teachers or other high authorities of school may check child’s social media pages; even if their content is private and seen only to their friends, any student can download pictures posted on social networking sites.


3. Do Not Post Objectionable Content from School Networks


Almost every school and college have implemented systems that track logins and IP addresses, so students cannot stand a chance to get away after posting any objectionable content, e.g. harassment, profanity, etc. on social media.


4. Never Share Confidential Information


Children should not share their personal tracking ID, their present location, and other confidential information. This is for their safety. Once you put them on social media, no hacking is needed – identity is straight stolen.


5. Do Not Lie or Cheat

If you have taken leave to visit your sick grandmother, and you post a check-in at a music concert you could not miss, or even upload a picture of the program, make sure to be academically investigated in future then.


6. Never Ignore School-Specific Policies


There can be rules like you can be rusticated from the school if they find you using a single hateful or abusive word on social media, even if you do not mean to bully anyone but use it for fun. So, never ignore the school rules while you are on social media.


7. Do Not Share or Post Questionable Content

 Are you done with your college and now looking for a job? Make sure you have put down all questionable content which can be seen publicly on your profile. You do not want your impression to go wrong during the interview, because office authorities often rely on social media before relying on their new-to-be employees.


8. Never Threaten Violence

You maybe threatening some student on social media out of rage, but you never know how serious the matter can get if anything wrong happens to the student. Institutional authorities have the right to investigate any threat they locate, so students should always avoid doing so.


9. Never Insult Teachers

You may not like a teacher, but there is no need to throw trash on her on social media. You can get into a lot of trouble if you are found doing so, which can lead to punishment. So why take such risk; keep your hatred to yourself.


10. Avoid Relationship Drama

During young love, there are high chances of excitement and showing love through media or heart breaks and posting heavily emotional stuffs online. Do not make fun of yourself and also do not post that you do not want your school authorities and parents to see online.

Make sure never to trust privacy settings 100%. You are potentially seen by your parents, by your school, and by strangers.

These top 10 things if students avoid, then that may save themselves from ruining their education or career in future, and also save them from bullying others intentionally or unintentionally.
