Social Media, Gaming and the Metaverse
Social media and online games are great ways to stay connected, interact and have fun with family and friends. Knowing how to do so safely while protecting your identity and personal information is essential.
With the increase in popularity of the Metaverse, those interactions are also occurring in virtual 3D worlds via avatars and technologies such as virtual reality (VR) headsets and augmented reality apps. Some of those interactions can occur in unmoderated worlds increasing the risk of youth and children being exposed to inappropriate content and interactions.
