Department of Education releases social media guidelines for students
BRONX - A new set of social media guidelines from the city's Department of Education is trying to teach students how to improve their online image.

The report suggests that students write comments and tag photos that show off their best attributes.

Lastly, it asks students to take cyberbullying seriously, by only accepting known 'friends' and 'de-friend' or report anyone who posts explicitly.
The Department of Transportation says it's employees received their own version of this list back in 2012.
