Cyber Bullying + Internet Safety

   Hey guys, today I am going to be talking about cyber bullying. This is a VERY important topic, and it has to do with the online world. If you didn't already know cyber bullying is the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature. 
 
Cyber Bullying happens a lot in the online world. Although the online world is fairly safe and positive, not all parts of the the internet are safe.  

Cyber bullying can cause people a lot of problems. One example of cyber bullying is mean/hateful messages. 

My friends sometimes send me chain mail, which is a message that says to pass it on to (# of people) or (something) will happen to you. Don't participate in it. Tell your friends to please not send you any chain mail, and suggest them not to participate in chain mail either. Some of these emails are either sen to scare you, or have a tracking thing to track your email and others you send it to.

Another thing to keep in mind, is that you need to be an UPSTANDER and not a bystander. An upstander is someone who acts when they see something wrong. A bystander is someone who sees something wrong but does nothing about it. You want to be an Upstander!

Different ways to be an Upstander online are:


  • Report people on social media who are bullying people
  • Tell a trusted adult if you/someone else are getting bullied
  • Be careful about what you post online

So guys I want to tell you one more thing, be safe online. I love Pinterest and google+ and messages and all the other social media that I have. But always before you post/ text remember one thing T.H.I.N.K. So think is an acronym which stands for

T - is it true?
H - is it helpful?
I - is it inspiring?
N- is it necessary?
K - is it kind?

Cyber Bullying is a horrible thing and one way you can make a difference is to spread awareness about it! Tell your friends and family, talk about internet safety on social media, or make a blog post about it! The more people know about the safer and better the online world can be!

Thanks guys for reading my rambles :) I hope you guys spread awareness about cyber bullying!

  2. My teacher actually says that T.H.I.N.K stands for:
    T - is it true?
    H - is it helpful?
    I - is it intelligent?
    N- is it necessary?
    K - is it kind?
    but I definitely agree with both versions.
