Sorry.... most of the time a name on a computer screen is not the person's real name. Give it another try.

Go back

Correct

You got it. Call yourself anything from Batman to Dustin - the computer won't know itís not your real name, so itís easy for an adult to pretend to be a child. People can pretend to be anything they want on the Internet so don't let them fool you - youíre smarter than the computer.

True False

Not a good idea. If you shouldn't or wouldn't use a word when talking face-to-face then don't use it online. You know you're joking but the person at the other end may not and could be offended. Also, are you sure it's your friend? Someone else may have the same screen name. Stay Safe - do not say anything offensive so you don't hurt anyone.
