Before You Share RICBA Books On Line...


Remember our rules about on line communication:

Before we SHARE, we remember the basic and very important ideas about communicating on line, on the internet, through blogging, social networking sites, or however you want to SHARE.


Before we SHARE, let's show we CARE.


We CARE about:

1) being SMART on line

2) being KIND on line

3) protecting our PRIVACY on line

4) being ETHICAL on line

5) being RESPONSIBLE on line
