First personal experience of cyberbullying happened in my secondary school

I am sharing my personal experience and I was bullied online in middle school. In addition, when I was about 14 or 15 years old, I was bullied by friends and called Alvin. So when he knew that one day I was reading this, he often wrote horrible things about me online, and then he even wrote even worse things, and he said I want you to fall from the earth to die and post on Facebook then, he wanted me to lose face in front of my classmates until now, and I will still remember it forever, but everyone can read what he said to me on Facebook. Next, I know that everyone thinks the same about me. Therefore, I couldn’t get rid of the trouble of being online, I had to calculate the actual distance from school to him literally.

I know that one day I eventually left my friendship group. When I first came home, I would tell my parents that I was bullied by a friend, and my parents told me to stay away from the Internet to block his contact to avoid the same thing.

Second personal experience of cyberbullying on facebook

According to this picture, I have experienced being bullied by others. When I first saw my first blog being commented as bad on Facebook, I was very scared and uncomfortable, and I was afraid that others would be constantly attacked and insulted me. When others read my blog, I would be misunderstood and I feel very scared and I posted it on my blog due to his comments. Furthermore, I immediately took action to blocked this person’s contact and reported and he was no longer in my Facebook contact.

Similarly, the first way to stop Cyber bullying is to not respond to bullying messages. For example, when people want to find trouble to you, first they turn to attacks using Facebook, Twitter, and other social media, which hurts and insults you. Therefore, if you cannot speak directly, please do not reply directly to the text messages, instant messages, emails or other communications you receive from the bully. So why bullies want to hurt people, it’s because bullies want to fight back from their goals, and if we fight back the text, it only makes things worse. The best thing to do is to stay silent and disconnect from the Internet.

Also, the second way to stop Cyber bullying is to block all communication with Cyber bullies. For example, when you feel your child is being harassed by a bully, we should immediately tell them to stop communicating with those bullies. Another way to keep them safe is to delete information from email contacts and prevent them from entering social networks. Beyond that, we can seek privacy settings on social media sites to ensure that bullies no longer interact with your children online.

Hence, the third way to stop Cyber bullying is to Avoid sharing sensitive personal information online. for example, do not take an explicit photo and posted on Facebook and Instagram this is because all this social media are public platform this will lead many bully to attack and tease to drop a bad comment on your blog .

Conclusion

  2. It is sad that cyber bullying is still happening in the society. People would just want to drop remarks about everything and this just make them “useless” in the society.
