In Europe and beyond, thousands of activities will be organised by our Safer Internet Day committees to reflect on the way people present themselves on the web, ranging from social networks and dating sites to online role-playing games such as Second Life and World of Warcraft. Staying online and being connected, whatever the circumstances, has indeed become critical for today’s youngsters. Not being connected frequently means social exclusion.
Join us in a real celebration of our virtual lives by registering online or contacting your national awareness centre. And don’t forget, “It’s more than a game, it’s your life!”.
