At National Online Safety, we provide multi-award-winning online safety education for the whole school community. It’s our mission to make the internet a safer place for children. We believe that when children go online to learn, communicate or play, they should be able to do so safely. That’s why we provide schools all over the world with the knowledge they need in order to tackle new and evolving online risks.
Tagging and Sharing
The facility to instantly share interesting content with others is one of social media's most popular facets. Our short video on tagging and sharing will make sure you're not missing out on any essential information.
What are tagging and sharing?
Sharing is one of the core features of social media. It usually requires just a couple of clicks. Another form of sharing a post is to tag connections in the comments.
Most social platforms allow users to link other users to the post to draw their attention to it. This method doesn’t share the post as widely, but people are more likely to see the post.
Users share posts because they think they are relevant to people in their network, funny or interesting - and they often want to be known as the first to share it.
