Every age group is vulnerable to cyberbullying, but teenagers and young adults are common victims. Cyberbullying is a growing problem in schools. Cyberbullying has become an issue because the Internet is fairly anonymous, which is appealing to bullies because theirintimidation is difficult to trace. Unfortunately, rumors, threats and photos can be disseminated on the Internet very quickly.
This type of users should not be encouraged. What your opinions?

According to a recentAP-MTV surveyof 1,247 14-to-24 year olds,50% have experienced some form of digital abuse, including spreading lies, violation of trust, and digital disrespect. Another astounding finding of that survey is that76% say digital abuse is aserious problem for people their age.So cyberbullying is not some insignificant problem experienced by few.Cyberbullying is widespread, your children are aware of it, they understand how it happens and yet they are not aware of or concerned with the consequences of such actions. Here are somemore mind boggling findings from that same survey:*.Just about half (51%) of young people say they have thought about the idea that things they post online could come back to hurt them later*.Just 1 in 4 have given some thought to the idea that things they post online could get them In trouble with the police and only 28% have considered that they could get in trouble at school for those things.How about you? Do you understand the dangers of cyberbullying?
