Stamp out social media abuse and create a better internet together with Latics.

Today, Tuesday 10th February 2015, millions of people across the UK and globally are celebrating Safer Internet Day, including everyone at Wigan Athletic.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the day is a great opportunity to talk to your family and friends about the safe and positive use of technology, and to share a smile to help create a kinder online community.

This year’s theme is ‘Let’s create a better internet together’ and provides a great opportunity for everyone to explore the responsibility we all have to help create a kinder online community.

We hope you enjoy using the internet to connect and interact with Latics and Latics supporters and ask you to continue using the internet in a responsible way across all of our social networks.

Safer Internet Day is supported by the Premier League and the Football Association, and hundreds of schools and organisations right across the UK.
