• Yet another cyberbullying caution

    If you don't know by now, cyberbullying is bullying or harassment that happens online. It can happen in an email, a text message, a game or on a social networking site. It might involve spreading rumors or images posted on someone's profile or passed around for others to see, or creating a group or page to make a person feel left out.

    What do you do if you're being harassed online? 

    Most importantly, don't respond, bullies usually are looking for a reaction and tell an adult. In addition, save the evidence, such as texts, emails, facebook conversations, etc. Sometimes you can stop bullying if you ignore or block the person. You can also report the abuse to the website where it is taking place. 

    Don't be a victim or a bully

    Sometimes, what you do or say online leads some people to pick on you. If you let your friends take a photo or video of you acting silly - and they post it online, people are probably going to comment that you are, in fact acting weird. 

    If you post a rude comment about someone or about something someone likes, then don't be surprised if you get back what you have dished out. Think about what you are writing or what's being recorded about you. If it's not something you'd want the whole world to know about, it's probably best to hit delete.
