GET SAFE ONLINE - The Deaf Community is benefiting greatly from the Internet and social

networking sites such as Facebook, BEBO and My Space. With the benefits,

also come risks such as online bullying, disclosure of private information,

cyber-stalking, and access to age-inappropriate content and, at the most

extreme, online grooming and child abuse. For adults, who are also using

these sites in greater numbers, there are serious risks too. They include:

loss of privacy and identity theft. Adults too can be victims of

cyber-bullying and stalking. A new website has been established to give

people clear information and guidelines and is well worth looking at
