Here's what you can do:

Think before you accept a request

First, check the profile of the person who sent you a friend request and find out who they are. Remember, some people like to pretend they are someone else, and sometimes it's hard to know if they are telling the truth or not.

Do you have friends in common? Are you from the same city? Do not feel pressured to accept friend requests from strangers. Double-check your privacy settings so that people you don't know can't get the information you don't want them to know.

Think before you send anything
What you think is a joke can be hurtful to someone else. Think before sharing, or think before sending something.

Think carefully before you hit the 'send' button, especially when you're angry or upset. Once you share a message, photo, or video, it's hard to control what happens next. Deleting your posts is nearly impossible.
