What was once confined to the school yard has expanded into cyberspace, and these days, cyberbullies are causing more than just hurt feelings. Studies suggest that more than 42% of kids have been bullied while online. With serious results in many cyberbullying cases, including suicide, it is a concept that definitely deserves the attention of computer users on a worldwide basis. Thus it's crucial to know how to eliminate cyberbullying on campus with SurveilStar Cyberbullying Eliminating Software.
What is Cyberbullying?
Cyberbullies use various aspects of technology to threaten, harass, or embarrass other internet users. Victims are often teens or preteens who live in the same area or attend the same school district as the cyberbully.
On a fairly frequent basis, cyberbullies send e-mails, instant messages, or text messages to the intended victim's mobile phone or computer. Cyberbullying can also include leaving hurtful messages on a victim's blog. From threats of physical harm to willfully disclosing personal data and photos to many other internet users, the harmful behavior perpetrated by cyberbullies tends to defame and embarrass victims. The cyberbullies of today tend to be the victims of yesterday, and bullies and victims trade roles on a fairly regular basis.
Cyberbullying can occur directly or indirectly. In the case of direct bullying, one bully communicates with just one victim. The messages they trade back and forth are only between the two of them. In the case of indirect bullying, others are involved with the process. Often adults are involved, and few of the bullies know the victim. Whether they manage to get the victim's IM account or blog banned or they encourage others to post horrible information about the victim, the danger is very real because so many individuals are ganging up on the victim. With more bullies comes more power and more damage.
How Can I Prevent Cyberbullying?
Potential victims must know how to respond to a cyberbully should they encounter one while online. In case of an incident, the victim should:
* Ignore the emails, messages, or postings that use harmful language.
* Not forward bullying messages to others.
* Ignore emails, messages, and postings from known bullies.
* Block the addresses of known bullies.
* Show the messages to trusted adults including parents, teachers, or counselors.
