Why Responsible Netism?
Information, education, communication, E-commerce and services are the biggest advantages of the internet. The internet has tremendous potential and has changed the lives and perceptions of people especially children in multiple ways. It is certainly a boon in many different ways, but, is also a “NECESSARY EVIL”. It is extremely useful and valuable for growth development and empowerment, its impact also has certain disadvantages which cannot be ignored. It is therefore of prime importance to sensitize netizens (net users) about the impact of internet usage and social networking. The movement “Responsible Netism” aims at empowering people about online safety, thus promoting Responsible Online Behaviour.
