Do you know how easily cyber bullying can effect you?
What is Cyber bullying and how can you be effected by it?
Cyber bullying can be getting abused emotionally and mentally. You can get cyber bullied in several ways, such as on the computer or even by using cellphones. Using a computer people can easily email rumors about other people and it spreads like wildfire. Even on cellphones these mean messages from cyber bullies can be marked anonymous. The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey finds that 16% of high school students (grades 9-12) were electronically bullied through the past year in 2011. A 2006 poll from the national organization Fight Crime, found that 1 in 3 teens and 1 in 6 preteens have been victims of bullying.
Analysis of Cyberbullying
Cyber bullying can be just a simple text or email. You may or may not know someone is effected by it, but there may be some signs which include, emotional distress after using electronics, being protective of their digital life, or even a change in attitude or sleep. I have experienced bullying, and I can't imagine what it would feel like to be bullied in so many different ways, all the time. The effects of cyber bullying can change your life and the lives of your friends and family forever. This is just a short time thing, that may only happen for a year or so, but is still life changing and needs to stop. For it to stop, we all need to work together.
