1. Internet change communication by letting us talk or text people from far away. One example is FaceTime. It allow you to see the person you are talking to. Just like if was in person, face to face. Another one is KiK Messenger App. It let you text the people, when you're connected to the internet.
2. Immediacy- When something spread quickly.

Permanece- When something you post stay there forever.

Lack of Control- When you lose possession of something you post

3. Immediacy online is when some happen immediately basically. For example, you can post a picture you regret and try to take it down, but it spread quick. Offline people can be quick to judge you cause of the photo.

Permanence online is when you post something and it stays there forever. For example, you can post something you regret on an old account that you lost the password to. How are you gonna take it down if you don’t know the password for that account. Offline whatever you did in the past, stays with you forever.

Lack of Control online is when you post something and take it down, but someone screenshot it or has a copy of it. For example you post a picture you didn’t like. You take it down, but someone took a screenshot of it and repost it. You can’t take it down cause it’s not your account, but you can try to ask them to. Offline example is when you tell a lie and it start spreading to everyone.

4. You can actively manage your identity by posting ok picture of you. So when you look up your name on Google, someone else with the same name and a bad reputation doesn’t pop-up.

You can protect your identity and your reputation is not to post anything stupid. Think before you post.

5. The internet does not have rules, but websites does. For example Instagram, if you post anything and you get reported. They can either ban you or give you another chance and just delete that account. You can’t get ban from the internet, but from website because websites has rules.  

6. Cyberbullying is like bullying someone in public, but online. One type of bullying is trolling. Trolling is messing with someone and trying to get a reaction from them. Another on is shaming

7. Victim- Ignore them
  • Bullies- Just think before you do something stupid.

  • Bystanders- Get an adult.
