CYBERBULLYING

Cyberbullying, the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person, is an unfortunate byproduct of digital communication. Although it’s usually easy to spot — a text message or social network post appears threatening or cruel, for example — sometimes it can also be less obvious. A bully might impersonate a

someone online, for example, even opening a fake account for the purpose of posting harmful information about another. It is important to be knowledgeable about this behavior and vigilant in teaching young people how to spot and report it. Hopefully the resources below will help!

According to a 2018 Pew Research Center report:

  • 59% of U.S teens have been bullied or harassed online.

  • 42% of teens say they have been called offensive names online.

  • 90% believe online harassment is a problem.

  • Most young people believe teachers, social media companies and politicians are failing at tackling this issue.
