One Good Thing

(Click here to see OGT videos and text messages people have posted)

There are lots of ways to participate in Safer Internet Day, but the best (probably the easiest and most fun) is to share One Good Thing. It’s really easy, just 2 steps:

1) Think of a good thing (big or small) you’ve seen or done that makes the Internet a better place or the world a better place using the Internet.

2) Share it with a little text or video telling us about it – just 15-30 seconds or 50 words, short and sweet. It could be about…

  • Texting a kind message to a friend who was sad
  • Helping a grandparent figure out Facebook
  • Making sure a young cousin is posting appropriate photos
  • Getting a bunch of parents together and teaching them about how to use social media safely
  • Creating a pile-on of kindness for someone who was getting harassed or cyberbullied
  • Teaching people at a senior center how to make funny Vine videos
  • Showing your parents how to play Minecraft

We’ll fill this site with individuals’, groups’ and schools’ good things. Videos are great, but text is fine too if you like to write. Don’t forget the hashtags: #OneGoodThing and #SID2017

In the spirit of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we ask that if you’re under 13 years of age and want to share One Good Thing, please have a parent submit it with his or her email address and phone number.

[…] To celebrate Safer Internet Day, instead of telling your kids what they should not do online, show them what they should be doing. Let’s build a better internet, by talking about the great things happening online. If you need help finding inspiring stories, (unfortunately positive stories do not rank high in search results), check out Connect Safely’s OneGoodThing channel. It features videos from teens talking about how they use social media to do good. I included one of the videos below but there are plenty more on this channel. If you have your own example, share it at One Good Thing. […]

I close my browser often for various reasons, and having to repeatedly log into my accounts like Facebook, Yahoo, Gmail, and etc, is very inconvenient and getting gold. Firefox 2 never did this, just my current Firefox 3..
