An essential toolkit to help everyone — from parents to teenagers to educators — take charge of their digital lives.
Online shame comes in many forms, and it's surprising how much of an effect a simple tweet might have on your business, love life, or school peers. A rogue tweet might bring down a CEO; an army of trolls can run an individual off—line; and virtual harassment might cause real psychological damage. In Shame Nation, parent advocate and internet safety expert Sue Scheff presents an eye—opening examination around the rise in online shaming, and offers practical advice and tips including:
• Preventing digital disasters
• Defending your online reputation
• Building digital resilience
• Reclaiming online civility
Armed with the right knowledge and skills, everyone can play a positive part in the prevention and protection against online cruelty, and become more courageous and empathetic in their communities.
