Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.

Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles.

Why Cyberbullying is Different

Kids who are being cyberbullied are often bullied in person as well. Additionally, kids who are cyberbullied have a harder time getting away from the behavior.

Cyberbullying can happen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and reach a kid even when he or she is alone. It can happen any time of the day or night.

Cyberbullying messages and images can be posted anonymously and distributed quickly to a very wide audience. It can be difficult and sometimes impossible to trace the source.

Deleting inappropriate or harassing messages, texts, and pictures is extremely difficult after they have been posted or sent.

Be Aware of What Your Kids are Doing Online

Talk with your kids about cyberbullying and other online issues regularly.

Know the sites your kids visit and their online activities. Ask where they’re going, what they’re doing, and who they’re doing it with.

Tell your kids that as a responsible parent you may review their online communications if you think there is reason for concern. Installing parental control filtering software or monitoring programs are one option for monitoring your child’s online behavior, but do not rely solely on these tools.

Have a sense of what they do online and in texts. Learn about the sites they like. Try out the devices they use.

Ask for their passwords, but tell them you’ll only use them in case of emergency.

Ask to “friend” or “follow” your kids on social media sites or ask another trusted adult to do so.

Encourage your kids to tell you immediately if they, or someone they know, is being cyberbullied. Explain that you will not take away their computers or cell phones if they confide in you about a problem they are having.

Cyberbulling is the main problem in the cyber world. All of us can be a bully or be bullied. People who give too much of their personal information are prone to cyber bullying. They bully other people by the use of other accounts in which they take from other people. Therefore, cyberbullying is connected to identity theft.

Bullying in general and Cyberbullying has a very different impact and influence to the society. We often neglect the aftermath of cyberbullying to a person, but if it's usually bullying in person, we're all suddenly so concerned and worried about that particular person. What we don't know is that both types of bullying has a similar effects to an individual. This is a very sensitive issue that everyone should really be knowledgeable about. We don't want to risk someone who's already being cyber bullied right now to feel alone and neglected every time he tries to open up to somebody. And that somebody could be you. If that's you, who's already reading this and who's now have the knowledge and is aware of the concept of cyberbullying, you must act now. You should get help for him or her and make them know that you're always be there for them.

Yes, I couldn't agree more! We should stand up against bullying! I have a friend who killed herself because she is being cyber-bullied. That is the rudest thing we can do to a person. Not all people have a high sense of self and not all can take bullying in the same level. Let us be considerate and respect each other.

I think you should provide an educative videos to spread this problem among the others.
