Principles of communicating with strangers in the Internet
The Internet service you use cannot recognize what kind of person you are. Therefore, when you communicate in the network, you should understand that people are very different and that is why you have to follow some principles and rules:
- communicating in the Internet with a person, you have to be aware that he/she can be anyone;
- communication with a stranger should not be too sincere, especially in the initial stages. Sincerity is good in communicating with a loved one. Do not tell the first stranger about your property and earnings, place of residence and your daily routine;
- if your new acquaintance asks questions about your salary, you should not tell about it anything;
- you should not trust files or links that you received from a stranger. These things can destroy your gadget;
- if a stranger you met in the Internet asks to send you a photo of your home or car, your place of work or a photo of relatives, you also have to beware and not send anything;
- do not tell strangers who you communicate in the Internet with about your immediate plans and trips;
- if you are displeased with a person who you for one reason or another met in the Internet with, then you just do not have to continue communicating with this person.
Of course, there are a lot of good people in the Internet, so online communication can bring you pleasure.
