In an effort to gain valuable advice concerning safety while using the internet and social media, students at Ronkonkoma Middle School were recently visited by Crime Victims Unit representative Kimberly Malone for a highly informative presentation. 

Ms. Malone spoke to the students about how their choices made while using their cellphones and the internet could have lasting impacts on both themselves, their family and friends. She advised them to think twice before sending messages, which could result in negative consequences affecting their personal lives.

The students were also given valuable advice on how to protect themselves online and were reminded to never give out personal information to strangers, share passwords with others and to maintain a private profile while using social media apps.
