I was invited by the St. Augustine Girls’ High School to present to their student body on the legal aspects on posting on social media, particularly as it pertains to youth. The legal presentation is part of a session to promote responsible behaviour on social media among students of the school.

The initiative coincides with Safer Internet Day 2015, a project co-funded by the European Union through the Safer Internet Programme and part of the joint Insafe-INHOPE networks.

In preparation for the presentation, I put together a handout on responsible online behaviour (collated from the UK Safer Internet Day homepage) and listing the various areas of law that affect posting on social media. I’ve also listed various items of legislation in Trinidad and Tobago, to illustrate the legal consequences of posting on social media.
