Today is Safer Internet Day – February 8, 2022

Get your modems going, because February 8 is Safer Internet Day! These days you can do almost anything on the Internet. You can play games, connect with friends, purchase that new outfit you didn’t think you needed but now know you do. It’s an extraordinary feeling to have an infinite amount of access to information and entertainment at your fingertips. The world wide web has come a long way from the Yahoo Geocities and the “You’ve Got Mail” of yesteryear. On February 8 we acknowledge these vast developments and the difficulties that may come with these changes by observing Safer Internet Day.
