Pause Before You Post

Pause Before You Post is a public service program from Jostens encouraging everyone to make smart decisions about personal publishing. Through expert advice online and in schools, we’re hoping to make teens and parents more aware of the responsibilities and consequences of sharing information, particularly through online social media.

Make a statement supporting Pause Before You Post and spread the word in your community with the following pledge: I believe in making smart decisions when I share information online and want to spread the word to my friends, family and community about taking time to Pause Before You Post.

Before I make a post, I pledge to ask myself:

  • Who will be able to see what I post?
  • Will anyone be embarrassed or hurt by it?
  • Am I proud of what I’m posting?
  • How I would feel if someone posted it about me?
