when cyber bullied you should...

Remain calm! -Dont reply or react in any way. Replying is the very thing that powers the bully.

Block the bully-use privacy tools and block barriers to prevent the next attack.

Reach out for help- ask an adult or parent for guidence for you and the bully.

Use reporting tools-If the bullying took place via a social network, use that service’s reporting or “abuse” tools.

Be civil-You're doing yourself a favor. Even if you don't like a person, it's a good idea to be decent and not sink to his or her level. Research shows that gossiping about and "trash talking" others increase your risk of being bullied.

Dont be a bully - You know the old saying about walking a mile in someone's shoes; even a few seconds of thinking about how another person might feel can put a big damper on aggression. That's needed in this world.

Be a friend, not a bystander. Forwarding mean messages or just standing by and doing nothing empowers bullies and hurts victims even more. If you can, tell bullies to stop, or let them know bullying is not cool - it's cruel abuse of fellow human beings. If you can't stop the bully, at least try to help the victim and report the behavior.
