Cyberbullying

In Digital Citizenship

What is cyber bullying?

Cyber bullying is when people use the internet to harass, threaten, hurt a person mentally or emotionally, embarrassed and humiliated. Though cyber bullying is very common for pre-teens and teenagers.
Some people who have seen cyber bullying are trying to stop it by going to the source. For example Prince William and Kate Middleton had a conversation with the bosses who run Twitter and Facebook about trying to prevent people getting harassed online and that could affect them in real life.

In the video above it does not talk about cyber bullying but it does talk about what it does to kids and how they think what would happen to them. For instance if a person online is getting bullied it can instantly spread around an area so that the safe environment that they think is safe is not safe and they can be hurt.

Personal Issues

Because of cyber bullying many people have been linked to depression, the thought of being alone, psychological, emotional and physical stress; even some of the younger population has a higher risk of depression and anxiety.
