As the Internet has “World Wide Webbed” its way into the everyday lives of people across the globe, there has unfortunately also been an increase in online crime. Online predators, cyberbullies and hackers are new foes that Internet users need to be wary of.
As a result, the US Senate passed a resolution in 2006 declaring the entire month of June as Internet Safety Month, an awareness effort to make the Internet safer for all users, particularly for children.
LMGPR is getting involved in the outreach effort with its own Facebook campaign. Now through the end of June every time someone “Likes” LMGPR on Facebook, we will donate $1 to GetNetWise, a coalition of Internet industry corporations and public interest organizations who share the common goal of creating a safe online experience for all users. GetNetWise.org features articles and video tutorials for Internet users on items such as computer viruses, identity theft, and the risks children face online.
LMGPR is aiming for 500 new “Likes” by the end of the month, so tell your friends! Go to our Facebook page and simply click “Like.” We’ll handle the rest. Not only will you be helping a great cause, but you’ll also be keeping your finger on the pulse of all that is going on with LMGPR.
Everyone who uses the Internet is at risk, so do your part. “Like” LMGPR… a safer Internet is just a click away.
