Cyberbullies are often people who lack the courage or strength to confront someone face to face. While bullies who attack others physically or verbally are looking for power and control, cyberbullies are often motivated by anger or revenge. Sometimes cyberbullying is unintentional. Classmates start out playing around, or think they’re just teasing. They don’t realize that the things they say are hurtful, and could cause serious problems. Cyberbullying is the use of electronic communication to harass, threaten, or embarrass others. Be polite when posting on social media. Don’t send a message to someone else when you’re upset or angry. Post only what you are comfortable with the world seeing forever. Delete anything you receive that’s hurtful to another. Don’t respond to it. Don’t forward it. Photos can be altered and posted in ways you might not like. If you do post a photo, use one that your parent(s) would approve of. Remember, there is no such thing as privacy online!
