LGBT? Get Advice Online

0

FInding your place as an LGBT youth online can be hard, and when you find someone who says they’re in the same community as you, you’re automatically friends, right? Wrong. You can never be too careful online. While you may feel more comfortable talking to people online about who you are, you need to make sure not to share too much information and that’s where the ThinkUKnow website comes in.

This web page discusses about risks that can appear online as a LGBT youth, gives you thoughts to consider when meeting someone new online, tips on how to stay safe online and places to find support as an LGBT youth.

Review

The inclusion of safe spaces on this web page is really beneficial as it directs young people to the places where they are less likely to interact with unsavoury people. The information provided is good too, I think it’s a great overview for young LGBT people who may be more tempted to meet up with people online because they found a similarity that they may not find with people in their offline life.

The way the information is laid out makes it really simple to find the information you want to look at and make it quick to read.
