Good afternoon everyone, I am here to talk about cyberbullying that is happening nowadays.
Cyberbullying is when someone is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, or otherwise targeted by use of the internet, digital technologies, or mobile phones. This can include anything from harassment via text and instant messages to discussions on message boards or blogs and even worse. As more and more student-aged children gain access to the internet, the social aspect of school expands far beyond the buildings in which they learn.
Cyberbullying are sometimes caused by anger, jealousy, fun and power. Those who are being bullied in the internet or physically bullied causes them to have psychological disorders, fear and low performance in class. The victims may also feel depressed and embarrassed in some cases. It could also affect the victim’s health because of being bullied like headaches.
According to anti-bullying organizations, cyberbullying doesn't exist once anyone older than eighteen is involved. Maybe that's why this topic seems to be forgotten about after high school, and even in some areas, middle school. The fact of the matter is, cyberbullying doesn't just go away; it just takes on an uglier name with more severe consequences. People, young adults most importantly, turn to the internet to voice their opinions about anything and everything. The problem with this freedom is that most young adults abuse what the internet has to offer. And also in grade schools, because we are now living in a world of technology and many young people know how to use gadgets and the internet, many children bully others in social Medias. Children used to tease each other on playgrounds; now they do it on websites, namely social networking services like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
