The Cyber Bullying Virus is a video that compares cyber bullying to a virus. It speaks of the host of the virus, the bully, determining and hurting its targeted victim, Jane Doe through text, email, and social media. It also addresses how cyber bullying is contagious and spreads to other people by peer pressure, hate, and envy. The video treats cyber bullying as a deadly disease causing many deaths by suicide each year, but through compassion, hope, and courage we can cure the world of this virus.
I thought it was really clever to relate cyber bullying to a virus. I think that by doing this, it can allow teenagers and children to see how cyber bullying is a serious epidemic of the 21st century. This video also does a great job of proving the Twitter picture claiming "everything is a joke on the Internet" as false. It shows the harmful nature of the problem and that there is nothing funny about cyber bullying.
I also really liked that they used Hate, Envy, Compassion, and Hope as Facebook and Twitter names, so that children and teens could relate the words that were written to the emotion that caused those words to be typed in the first place. The viewers could understand where cyber bullying comes from. Cyber bullying doesn't just happen. There are reasons behind our actions, and if we can discover the source of our actions, we can learn change our behaviors and prevent ourselves from heading down those dark paths in the future. The video also used Compassion and Hope as Facebook names to show what these two qualities look like, and the power they have on defeating hate, envy, and cyber bullying .Hope and Compassion are really important, and for those who have the courage to show them to victims of cyber bullying, those courageous people may just save a life.
Cyber bullying is like a virus because it will continue to spread and harm many others, if we do not act and stop bullying now.
