Think before you post online – advice for everyone


This is a great image to share with students to help them consider what they are doing online. Think before you post anything on Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, a blog, or even email or text message. That information could end up being seen by anyone.

I forget where I found it so I apologize to the owner.

    Hi David,

    That is indeed an excellent visual to use. You might want to consider installing Tineye if you use Firefox. It’s a simple to use add-on that allows you to right-click on an image and see where else on the internet the image has been used. With a little sleuthing you can often figure out who created a particular image. In this case, my first ‘hit’ led me to The Clever Sheep’s blog post ( regarding this particular image. This post in turn led me to a The Spicy Learning Blog post ( and the original image. And there I found a Creative Commons Attribution (WOOHOO!) logo with, “Think before you post by Royan Lee is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.”

    I strongly encourage anyone using images in their posts or websites or wikis to use any number of Creative Commons search engines (I use Flickr) or to use the tineye add-on to see if the image can be used with simple attribution.

    Hope this helps!
