You've heard it before- the Internet can be a dangerous place.

Every photo you upload or statement you post reaches a lot of people and can stay online forever.

That's why ThreeSixty Journalism, a non-profit based at the University of St. Thomas, has created a website called Protect My Rep.

The site aims to help teens take control of their reputation on social media.

Deborah Honore, a high school student and leader on the project, and social media expert Kate-Madonna Hindes stopped by our KSTP-TV studio to talk about the project.
