What is Cyberbullying?
Cyberbullying is the use of technology like mobile phones, computers and the internet to harass, intimidate, embarrass and annoy people. It is bullying, the same as ganging up on someone in the playground or on the bus. Bullying is not tolerated in schools, society or the workplace and is punishable by law.
What can you do?
All internet users need to follow these rules when going online:
Treat people as you wish to be treated. If your message could possibly be misconstrued, use emoticons to display your tone 🙂
If the message is really private, it is probably best delivered in person, rather than by a medium that can be forwarded or copied
If you feel uncomfortable in an online situation, tell an adult who you trust. Don’t worry about being blamed or embarrassed because adults are not like your peers. Adults will keep things to themselves and look at things without making judgements
It is not your fault if you are being bullied without reason
Keep private stuff private – passwords, who you like, personal photos, etc. Keep it to yourself and definitively don’t put it online
If you wouldn’t say or do something online with your parents or Principal watching, then it is definitely not the right thing to do. Think of the consequences for you and the person you are about to bully
Get to know the best ways to keep your online profiles as private as you need
Stand up for your friends. Tell an adult if you are aware of CyberBullying occurring. Remember the Bystander’s Code and refuse to be a supporter, spectator or passive witness to bullying
Before you hit send or post, take a deep breath and think about it for 30 seconds. Don’t get caught up in the moment; think about what MIGHT happen if you send that image or message. If nothing positive can come of it, it really can’t be worth doing
If you think your friends have a taken a joke too far, let them know
If you are uncomfortable, leave the situation
If you have been bullied, keep the evidence (try the Prtscn button – it takes an image of your screen that you can paste into Word)
Block or delete those who make you feel uncomfortable
Report abuse to managers or even the Police
