CAUSES AND SOLUTIONS OF CYBERBULLYING

CAUSES

Ignorance

It is the most common cause of cyberbullying when they’re teenagers and they don’t know what can happen with the words they say. Sometimes cyberbullying starts when bullies are bored and they want to humiliate other guys.

Power

When we’re teenagers, we think that we can do whatever we want, so bullies use discrimination to feel better.

Anonymity

This is the main problem of cyberbullying, because nowadays, sending an email to someone is very easy and quick, and you can tell what you want (usually insults) to the person you want without giving your name.

Vengeance

This is the most worrying reason, because they know what they are doing to the other person.

SOLUTIONS

Self-control

Think what are you going to upload to the internet before you do it, because it can be manipulated.

Bad comments

Try to be respectful in chats, because if you’re offensive with other people, they would be with you.

Don’t answer disrespectfully

The best way to finish a conversation with someone that you don’t know is blocking the person and ignoring and erasing his stupid comments.

Online service

Tell to platform administrator that someone is offending you. If there is offensive behaviour, it will probably be erased.

Help the victim

You can tell the victims’ parents what is happening and try to solve it with their help.
