On the Horizon: Cyberbullying

Social media is a prevalent part of most young people’s lives. It’s a great way to keep in touch with friends, find out what’s going on with each other, and have a social time online. But a disturbing trend is quickly emerging…. Cyberbullying.

Like school bullying, victims are targeted by one or more people and instead of doing the bullying in person, they are using digital resources to attack their victim. It can range anywhere from name calling to posting pornographic images on their social media sites. It’s not a game and it’s not to be taken lightly. And as we found out in this week’s video blog, it’s not always done by someone’s enemy.

One thought on “On the Horizon: Cyberbullying”

  1. Very informative post and video. I think that cyberbullying will continue to rise as people have more access to different types of technology. In my area there have been two kids who have committed suicide in the past month who were cyberbullied. Hopefully, one day, people can learn to respect each other for human beings.
