The 9th of February is Safer Internet Day (SID), an event which is celebrated in over 100 countries worldwide.
It is aimed at raising awareness of emerging online issues and every year organisers choose a topic that reflects current concerns.
The theme for SID 2016 is "Play your part for a better internet", reflecting the fact that everyone has a role to play.
Creative parenting expert, Nikki Bush, says SID is all about helping people understand what the basic rules for using the internet are and how to be a good neighbour online.
