Cyber bullying

  1. 1. CYBER-BULLYING
  2. 2.  According to Brown and Demaray (2010), “Cyberbulling is an individual or group willfully using information and communication involving electronic technologies to facilitate deliberate and repeated harassment of threat to another individual or group by sending or posting cruel text and/or graphics using technological means.”
  3. 3.  Brown and Demaray (2010) describe how cyber bullying is different from traditional bullying. First, bullies have more access to victims than the traditional form of bullying. They can contact their victims through email, cell phone or any electronic communication.
  4. 4.  Second, the audience can grow rapidly because technology can reach many people at one time.
  5. 5.  Third, because technology allows anonymity, bullies are able to act harsher than they would in person. There is limited protection to the victim if the bully remains anonymous.
  6. 6.  According to McNamara (2007), there are solutions online that may aid in stopping bullying. Some social-networking websites do not allow abusive language and accounts can be closed if it is reported.
  7. 7.  According to Hardcastle (2010), the most important thing that a victim can do when being cyber bullied is to not respond to them. Instead of responding, the victim should go the teachers and parents for help.
