Hate Speech is a real actual treat. It’s is growing and spreading because of the social networks , it hurts victims , shocks them and interferes with their life with insults ,encouraging hate. The Internet is seen as a way to keep in touch with other people far away from us, as friends or parents, but sometimes, you can run into unpleasant situations, it often happens because of missing respect and misunderstanding. There is often misunderstanding because everyone has different points of view, and based on what they see and what they read, they feel different emotions than the others. That’s because online you can’t use body language, voice tones and facial expression. To keep from offending other people, you should:
Help your friend online
Share videos or photos only to make your friends laugh
Make right choices online
Know what to do if something goes wrong
Take regular breaks from the Internet
Be sure of what you share before sharing it, and only share positively
Support the other people
Be kind and respectful
Ask for help.
You should keep in mind that the Internet is really dangerous, and everything that you do online might have consequences, that’s why you should:
Act online in the same way you would act in reality, say the same things that you would tell in person.
Stay quiet when you have to.
Be careful about the language that you use, because the words that you use define your way of thinking and the general idea of the person with whom you are interacting.
Listen before you speak because speaking without listening to anyone could make a lot of misunderstandings.
Let everyone discuss in a civil and kind way, without using bad language, offensive word and threats.
