Think about it!
Going on the Internet is like going out on Halloween
* Everyone’s face is hidden
* Unless you know your friend’s costume (online name), you don’t know if you’re talking to your friend or someone you don’t know
*Any stranger can pretend to be a friend and you have no way of knowing who they are because they are behind the mask of the computer!
