The internet is an amazing place. You probably use it most days for research, socialising or just to have fun. When you imagine how many billions of people are using the Internet at any one time, you could say that overall it is actually a pretty safe place. However, the Internet does have a few pitfalls and people especially young people need to be aware of them in order to use it confidently and safely.
