File sharing - Digital Citizenship

You are file sharing whenever you download files from the internet or you let internet users access your computer files. How much do you really know about file sharing?

The Open Share icon conveys the act of sharing by visually representing one hand passing an object to another hand, as in "pass it on" or "sharing". The icon also represents an "eye", as in "look at this".
