SHARE CHECKLIST

Be careful what you share. Things aren’t always what they seem online. Just because a story appears online, doesn’t make it true. The internet is great, but it can also be used to spread disinformation in the form of misleading news and content. Discover the checklist here: https://sharechecklist.gov.uk/

LOOKING AFTER YOUR SELF-IE

The Royal Society for Public HealthSPH has developed a free, open access e-learning Looking after your self-ie: A guide to finding your balance on and offline, which aims to help social media users to build a meaningful, more balanced relationship with platforms. The programme focuses on awareness-raising; encouraging meaningful use by educating users on the potential harms and benefits of social media. Relevant to members of the public of all ages, the resource explores social media’s impact on loneliness, relationships, self-image, self-esteem, sleep, online trolling and bullying.
