Being a Digital citizen

A digital citizen commonly refers to a person that participates in society using a certain amount of information technology (IT). To qualify for the unofficial title of digital citizen a person must have the skill and knowledge to interact with private and government organizations through means of “digital” tools such as computers or mobile phones, along with access to these devices.

People characterizing themselves as digital citizens often use IT extensively, creating blogs, use social networking and other means of modern communication.  Digital citizenship begins the first time any child, teen, and/or adult signs up for an email address, posts pictures online, uses e-commerce to buy merchandise online, and/or participates in any electronic function that is B2C or B2B.
