Central Idea: There are differences between Internet friends or in-person friends and understanding how to protect your personal information is very important.

In this quest you will investigate and learn that while people can develop rewarding friendships online they should be cautious with online-only friends and never reveal private information without asking a parent or trusted adult for permission. After earning your Communication & Relationships (CR) Badge of Power you will be able to:

  • compare and contrast online-only friends and in-person, face-to-face pals.
  • analyze why private information should not be given to anyone online without the permission of a trusted adult.
  • know what to do if an online-only friend asks them personal questions.
