Cyberbullying is prevalent everywhere, in private schools, public schools, camps, and much more. Cyberbullying has become a major issue because technology keeps evolving. People are on the phones 24/7 looking at the internet and social media. Today’s culture revolves around social media. This is where many people receive their latest news and updates. Everyone is constantly refreshing and checking it all the time. People do not realize how serious cyberbullying is and what it can do to a person. Many people who have been a victim of cyberbullying have pondered about taking their own lives or have committed the deed already. Cyberbullying is not a joking matter. Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, and fake profiles. Kids who are being cyberbullied are often bullied in person as well. Additionally, kids who are cyberbullied have a harder time getting away from the behavior. Cyberbullying messages and images can be posted anonymously and distributed quickly to a very wide audience. It can be difficult and sometimes impossible to trace the source. This should not stop people from facing cyber bullying head on and to help those kids who are being persecuted by this. It is our duty to protect children of all ages who are being harmed physically and emotionally.
