    The Internet can connect you to the ENTIRE world.

      Completely true. The Internet connects you to nearly all technological devices, including cameras, phones, and satellites!

      Sort of. It can only connect you to people with computers.

      No, those sites come up only if you click them.

      I don't know because that's never happened to me before.

    • C.

  • 5. 

    My parents didn't have the Internet when they were kids, so they don't know as much as I do.

    • A.

      Not really true. Sure, I get to grow up with the Internet, but my parents still know a lot more than I do, especially when it comes to emailing, navigating and Internet safety.

    • B.

      Yup. I use the Internet way more than my parents.

    • C.

      Not sure. I don't use the Internet that often, but they probably know more than I do.

  • 6. 

    ·         When I’m on Facebook, or any other social media site, all the things I post can only be seen by me.

    • A.

      O False - pretty much anything you post online can be accessed, even if you adjust your privacy settings. A “friend” can take a screen shot or forward a picture to others.

    • B.

      O True - if I adjust my privacy settings correctly, no one else can see my posts or pictures.

    • C.

      I don’t use Facebook or any other social media site.

      Download it! It looks cool!

  • 8.

      I don't know.

    • B.

      You just ignore it.
