A new trend
One of the most notable trends in bullying is cyberbullying. This is where a person is being bullied online. This can occur in that insults, rumors and other malicious statements about a person are being directed towards that person online and are being spread by other people.
Cyberbullying can occur in many ways. It can occur through emails, chat rooms, message boards, assorted social networking sites, text messages and even through videos and photos that are taken by a digital camera or a camera on a phone.
Control what is read
It will help to stop cyberbullying by controlling the things that one receives online. This includes avoiding all emails or messages that come from people that one does not know. Anything that is suspicious should not be opened.
Also, it will help to use proper blocking software to help block certain online users from one’s computer. This includes software that can block messages from certain people. This can be used to keep bullies from going online and posting hostile messages to other people. This should be used to keep the trend of bullying from being worse than it could be.
Address the problem in schools
It is especially important to address cyberbullying in schools. This is because cyberbullying often occurs through students in high school. This comes from how people in this age group might be more likely than others to engage in bullying activities. It will be important to control the ways how students are interacting with one another online by teaching them about how bullying can impact a person.
It also helps to work with addressing cases where cyberbullying is going on by reporting bullies to proper authorities. This is to ensure that they will not continue to engage in bullying activities. Anyone who does continue could face some further punishments as a result of cyberbullying.
