Tell us your “One Good Thing.” It can be something you’ve done to make the Internet a better place or the world a better place using the Internet or connected technologies (don’t be shy, we really want to hear from you) or something you know about. It can be a big thing or a little thing. And you don’t need to work hard to tell us about it. A short “selfie” video, text or tweet from your cellphone is all we need to spread the word about your One Good Thing.
We’ll post your video on YouTube, or embed it on this site. We’ll also show some of the videos at the 2015 U.S. Safer Internet Day celebration in Silicon Valley on February 10 as part of a worldwide celebration.
Positive action can solve problems, and our goal is to showcase the positive actions people of all ages are already taking, such as:
- Texting a kind message to a friend who was sad
- Using social media to fight poverty or inequality or to make things better at your school
- Using mobile technology (photos, video, etc.) to document and respond to problems in your community
- Creating a pile-on of kindness for someone who was getting harassed or cyberbullied
- Using social media to organize events or campaigns to benefit your community, the nation or the world
- Advising a younger relative about posting appropriate photos
- Getting a bunch of grown-ups together and teaching them about how to use social media safely
- Helping a grandparent figure out Facebook
