Safer internet day #SID2016

Today is Safer Internet Day, and there are events in many parts of the world. "From cyberbullying to social networking, each year Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and chooses a topic reflecting current concerns. For SID 2016, the focus of the day is "Play your part for a better internet", reflecting the fact that we all have a role to play."
Developing people's information literacy will enable them to make more informed, skillful and ethical use of the internet, so that's where I'd see my role!
There is a central Safer Internet Day website at https://www.saferinternetday.org/web/sid/home which has information on key events and initiatives and links to national sites. The UK site is http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/ and the US site is at http://saferinternetday.us/ and their main event is at Universal Studios (starting at 1pm US Eastern time, 6pm UK time), with a webcast at http://saferinternetday.us/livestream/
