AFL legend Adam Goodes has teamed with Telstra to share some tips on how Aussies can protect their online reputation this Safer Internet Day.

“Like most people, I love sharing photos and stories online and checking into Facebook to find out what my mates are up to. But as someone who lives in the public eye, I’m really mindful of how the things I say and do online affect my reputation,” Adam said.

“With so much of our lives now posted on Facebook, broadcast on Twitter and recorded in text messages, all it takes is one poorly-chosen or inappropriate comment to create some real headaches for anyone. So on Safer Internet Day, it’s worth considering the simple things we can all do to protect our online reputations.

“Adjusting your privacy settings, being respectful to others online and only sharing photos you’d be happy for everyone to see are my top suggestions. The other important thing to do is to maintain a balance between the digital and real worlds. The online space is great, but nothing beats getting outside, meeting up with people and getting into activities like sport.”

To mark Safer Internet Day, Adam has filmed a short video featuring his top tips for protecting an online reputation. The video can be accessed here
