• Do we know what kind of reflections do the things, we do in the internet, cause on ourselves, our family and other users?
• Do we use the Internet in the frameworks of right, beneficial and ethical manner or do we misuse it?
• To think about the answers to all these questions will guide users for a conscious use of the internet.
