Many social networks allow to post your location or check in each time you tweet or post a status update. To turn off the location settings, go into the settings or privacy menu and double check. Snapchat has developed a feature called snap map which can show your location. It is very important to turn this feature off so you are able to keep safe. Snap Map tracks your current location and places your avatar on a map like a pin. This can allow others to zoom in and find exactly where you are. It doesn't take effect until you update the app, and it has an opt-out option. If you're opening the app for the first time after the update, snapchat will walk you through a step-by-step tutorial on how to use the snap map. First, it'll show you how to pinch and zoom in the camera tool to access the map. Then it'll ask who you went to see your location. You get three choices: all your friends, select friends, or me. Choosing only me ' activates what it calls' ghost mode' meaning you can see others but they can't see you. To turn off location data altogether, you 'all need visit your phone's settings where you can scroll down to snapchat, click on 'location' , and choose to never share.

Don't post anything on a a social networking site which gives your real name, address, school, phone number or which will allow a stranger to contact you in real life. Make sure you don't ID your friends either. Don't upload anything that might might embarrass you at a later date. You might not realise it but things you post on the internet now could come back to cause problems for you later on, for it to be shown to the world then do not hit send. Remember once you send it you have lost control over of that lost control of that image or comment. Never be pressured into taking pictures of yourself that you wouldn't want other people to see. Trust your gut instinct over this. Once again you hit send, you have lost control over that picture and this can cause anxiety and stress. If you're using a shared computer at school, in an internet café or library then you'll stay logged on even when you close the browser. So don't forget to log off when you've finished the session. Read more tips about staying safe online.

WhatsApp messenger lets people sends instant messages, videos, photos, and short audio messages to either one person or within a group chat. Messages can only be sent to other smartphone users who also have WhatsApp. Once you install the app, it checks your address book to see if anyone else you know is already using WhatsApp, and connects you automatically. You have to be over 16 to use WhatsApp legally. Bullying can take many forms as it is a messaging service and we often hear of abusive group chats. You can block and delete and delete the contact. You can find out more by emailing them at support@whatsapp.com

If you are worried about your child experiencing bullying on tiktok, visit their safety centre first and foremost. If you want to report bullying directly to Tiktok. There are some safety points to consider when this app. Ensure that all privacy and security settings are checked and are private rather then public.

Snapchat is an app that allows users to send pictures to each other that disappear off screen within a set amount of time. Unfortunately, there is bullying on snapchat in the from of screenshots, sending pics without permission, negative comments and more. If this the case for you or someone you know they can block a user, tap the menu icon, select "My friends. locate their name in the list and swipe right across their name. If you would like to delete a friend from your contacts, press "Delete," even if you haven't added the user as a friend their name will appear in the "My Friends" list under "Recent" if they have sent you a message recently. If you receive an inappropriate photo or someone's harassing or bullying you, report it by filling out their online form.

Bullying or abuse on Instagram can happen in many ways. It can be either negative comments, fake profiles or hacking of accounts. Instagram take all of these violations very seriously and have plenty of advice on their pages if you or someone you know is the person who is being abusive. However, if it continues or it has gotten worse, you can use their in-app reporting tool. This page has details on how to report the abuse directly to them.

You have every right to use YouTube without fear of being subjected to bullying or harassment. Bullying can be reported and action taken when things cross a line. To flag a video you think is inappropriate (Click on the little flag bottom right of the video) and YouTube will take a look at it to see whether it breaks their terms of use. If it does then they will remove it. YouTube rules say cant upload videos with hate content, nudity or graphic violence and if you find one on someone else's space. click on the video to flag it as inappropriate. If under comments, you are being bulled, harassed or threats are being made, they have a reporting tool page where you can report the bullying and they will investigate.

Facebook does not tolerate bullying and say they will remove bullying content when they become aware of it and may disable the account of anyone who bullies or attacks another. They have a set of community standards that they adhere to and it states that they will not tolerate bullying in any shape or from. You can report bullying on face the report links which appear near the content itself, as 3 dots and will give you an option to hide or report the comment or post. they will investigate and let you know their outcome. You may want to read their help pages on bullying.
