So if you read some of the facts/stats stated above and you don't want that to happen to you... then here are a few ways you will be able to prevent anything like this happening.
Source 2 has a few main points that are made. These are subtitles on the internet page, but they are;
1) Know that it's not your fault.
2) Don't respond or retaliate.
3) Save the evidence.
4) Tell the person to stop
5) Reach out for help.
6) Use available tech tools.

Now these are some great examples of prevention. However, there is one big one that I think they missed. That is that if you know someone who is being hurt or affected by cyber bullying in a very derogatory way then you need to step in and stand up for them. Or even if you here of anything that is happening like that then you also need to do the same.
How to Report Cyber Bullying
1) Report Cyber Bullying to Online Services
2) Report Cyber Bullying to Law Enforcement
3) Report Cyber Bullying to Schools
Okay, so these are great initial ideas for 'How to Report Cyber Bullying'. But for example, when it says 'Report Cyber Bullying to Online Services' it's actually a lot easier than you think. Like on Instagram there is a symbol that you can press to report someone or something. Then you simply just have to explain why. Then it should be taken care of. So for the other two, it is pretty straight forward. You just need to know how you can come in contact with the law enforcement and your school. Which in order to report this to your school, all you need to do is just go to your school and talk to someone about. Then they will talk to the law enforcement if it is something that you and your school cannot do on your own.
