KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – Kettering police roll out the rules of social media.

They held the first Social Kettering class Wednesday night.

It is a free class for residents to learn proper social media etiquette.

Officers gave advice about safe practices to follow.

“If you’re going on vacation, don’t post that you’re going on vacation. Don’t post every time you cross the state lines. You don’t know how your friend’s friends and friend’s friends are and they will burglarzie your house and you come back and ruin a vacation that way,” said Lt. Craig Moore, Kettering Police Department.

Other tips were for parents to help them monitor what their kids are looking at online and what kids should and shouldn’t be posting on the internet.

More classes like the one tonight could be offered depending on community interest.
