Kimberly Murdoch's curator insight, May 31, 2013 9:32 PM

Acording to CBC News Canada, in 2008 a national teachers’ organization came to the decision that cyberbullying should be a federal criminal offense. This article provides shocking statistics, stating that “a recent study commissioned by the federation shows that 34% of Canadians surveyed knew of students in their community who had been targeted by cyberbullying in the past year”. Honestly, this statistic blew my mind. That is a hefty percentage, especially during such a short time span (1 year).

Nadine Zebib's curator insight, May 31, 2013 10:51 PM

Rehtaeh Parson's story is tragic, but hopefully her story has helped take one small step towards ending cyber bullying. An image of her was passed around after she was raped by four men, and she was bullied so much that she felt the need to end her own life. It is stories like Rehteah's that get attention, although the attention came too late for her. Hopefully now, a life can be saved, justice can be found for some, and cyber bullying and trolling can be put to a stop.

In this situation, cyber bullying, I would stand up when if I get bullied on the internet. I agree with is articles information. Facebook is one of the largest social websites and is the most common place for cyber bullying. I truly believe that bullying face to face is the most common type of bullying. When people meet together, the bullys can make fun of your fashion or the way you look. While on the internet, it is more of a mental break down. I don't agree that one in ten parents know that their child is being cyber bullied because some parents check on their childs account and see if anything is ok and there is no cyber bullying.
Anna Kate Alford's comment, January 31, 2013 9:42 AM
I agree with you, Johnny. I'm pretty sure that more than "one in ten" parents know that their child has been cyber-bullied. Since tecnology is changing rapidly, maybe soon the only form of bullying will be cyber-bullying. The only thing I disagree about was that Facebook has the most cyber-bullying. I believe that the most cyber-bullying comes from text messages since the victims is the only one to read it. Standing up to the bully on the Internet is good, but not as good as standing up in real life. Also, any type of bullying is bad, and I think that all bullying is equally bad. I hope you enjoyed this article.
