What is Cyber Bullying?

Cyber bullying takes place ‘online’ using electronic devices to be mean or nasty about other people. Examples of cyber bullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles. Are you bullying without knowing? Joining groups or ‘liking’ mean pictures encourages cyber bullying.
  • Cyber bullying can happen at any time, anywhere; you don’t even need to know the person.
  • Messages can be posted anonymously and distributed quickly.
  • Deleting inappropriate or harassing messages is difficult once posted.
  • Remember, don’t post it, don’t forward it.
