Eastside Catholic High School

“I’m really private with my Facebook settings, and try to be careful with what I post and stuff.”

Michael Abraham, junior

“I try not to post too much personal info online.”

Nalani Saito, junior

Issaquah High School

“I don’t friend people I don’t know, I make sure my pictures and statuses are set so only my friends can see them, and I think about what I post.”

Alex Hanson, junior

“I double check everything to make sure it won’t ever come back to me in a negative way. Nothing is ever really private and nothing can ever really be permanently deleted, so I am cautious about who may be looking.”

Robbie Lustig, sophomore

Liberty High School

“On Facebook, I never add friends I don’t know personally, and I will occasionally go through my friends list to delete people I don’t want to know my business.”

Dana Sanders, senior

“I use the privacy settings on Facebook and come up with extremely ridiculous passwords for everything.

Emma Hewitt, senior

Skyline High School

“I assure my Internet privacy by censoring what I post on social media and where I am tagged. Yet I understand that none of what I put online is truly safe, so anything I post, I make sure I wouldn’t mind it getting out to the public.”

James Boyle, junior

“I keep my name and profile picture on social media visible to everyone just in case someone I meet outside of school with no mutual friends wants to send me a friend request. But other than that, I don’t keep any other information visible to the public. Everything else is only visible to people on my friends list.

Salma Mahmoud, sophomore
