The FBI Organizes one campaign, called Think Before You Post and is mainly aimed at schoolchildren schools. The goal of the campaign is to make students understand that they need to be careful with what they post on social media. Specifically, this campaign focuses on (fake?) threats, which some children may write to SOCIAL MEDIA, emails, messages, etc.
The FBI has said the service attaches great importance to threats coming from text messages, e-mail or social media.
When the authorities, whether it's the FBI or the local police, realize there is a threat, do research to determine if the threat is real or prank.
The FBI has decided to organize the Think Before You Post campaign to help (in collaboration with parents and schools), education and raising children's awareness of such things as not doing things that could have a serious impact on their future.
Η service wants to emphasize the seriousness of this issue and explains that threats are considered a federal crime and "those who post or send these threats can receive up to five years in prison or face other state or local penalties."
The authorities are investigating all the threats they find. This means they can miss a significant amount of time for a farce and delay it research for a real threat, endangering the person to whom the threat is directed.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) also issued a similar warning.
As part of his campaign, the FBI is giving some advice to students, pointing out that making threats is not a joke:
- Do not post or send threats.
- If one on-line If your threat concerns you, contact your local authorities immediately.
- If you notice a third-party threat, contact your local authorities.
- Do not report a threat before investigating the police to avoid being misinformed.
Although the FBI's current campaign focuses only on threat threats, there are many other activities that could have a significant impact.
Many children make various negative comments or posts on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook), which may contain racist content or anything else. Such publications can affect a child's relationships with his or her classmates and other people.
