    It might be a good idea to mention cyber bullying in there somewhere, maybe talking about spotting the signs of cyber bullying for yourself and for other people.

    Emotional manipulation in social media / messaging is a big thing nowadays too; but some people don't realise until it's too late. This is an aspect that's personal to me too, and I can say from experience that it's hard to realise you're being emotionally manipulated because you believe it's normal, and you don't spot the obvious signs until afterwards, when you've left the scene. 

    Not sure if these would fit into this thread specifically but I figured I'd mention them 
    What do you mean I have to think of an intelligent signature?
