My Digital World - A Facebook Digital Literacy Program

My Digital World Program is aimed at helping users to responsibly and safely navigate the digital world, so that they can take full benefit of what the internet has to offer.

It is also important to have a balance between having a digital space to express themselves, and promoting a welcoming and safe environment for everyone.
