Yahoo! and Safer Internet Day

On February 5, 2013, join Yahoo! and organizations around the globe in promoting safer online experiences for all. The tenth annual Safer Internet Day, sponsored by Insafe and co-founded by the European Union, is focusing on Online Rights and Responsibilities, with the slogan “Connect with respect.”

At Yahoo!, we try to make thinking about online safety a daily habit. We want everyone to think about what they’re posting before they post it, to create respectful interactions online. 

Along with some of our partners, we have a lot of great ways to get involved this Safer Internet Day. Check out our ideas, and let us know how you’ll be involved. We’ll be covering the events of Safer Internet Day on Twitter at @YahooSafely.

Yahoo! Answers:  We have also teamed up with Yahoo! Answers in our efforts. We want to hear from the community. Here’s a special question for Safer Internet Day, and we want your thoughts:
