This article provides some statistical information. 

Shelby Hughes's curator insight, November 17, 2014 11:25 AM

Either we have all experienced online bullying or have seen our peers being attacked by an online bully. Did you say anything when you saw a cruel injustice? Did anyone stand up for you? Each and everyday there is a post or tweet directed to hurt someone; a passive-aggressive killer. 

The bystanders in this situation are those who see the abuse and choose to scroll passed it and not give aid to the individual (Myers, 2014) Studies show that the chances of the bystander effect decrease in a dangerous situation (Fischer, P., Krueger, J. I., Greitemeyer, T., Vogrincic, C., Kastenmüller, A., Frey, D., & ... Kainbacher, M. (2011). The bystander-effect: A meta-analytic review on bystander intervention in dangerous and non-dangerous emergencies. Psychological Bulletin, 137(4), 517-537. doi:10.1037/a0023304). It is suggested that it may be explained with the "Arousal- Cost Reward Model" Fischer, at el. 2011). So in a situation that there is no direct danger the chances of aid are diminished (Fischer at el. 2011). 

Online bullying is not a clearly recognized as a dangerous situation and it can therefor be inferred that there is a higher chance that the bystander effect will take place (Myers, 2014). This is in fact a dangerous situation as there is a higher rate of suicide and absence from school from those affected by online bullying (Holt, 2014). 

Will we simply stand by as others are being attacked by online bullying?

Defeating the Culture of Bullying

Defeating the Culture of Bullying | Bullying prevention | Scoop.it

The common denominator of all types of bullying is a lack, or erosion, of empathy. Nurturing empathy, a potential that is present in almost all children, is therefore at the heart of interventions to reduce bullying. (Bazelon’s book is itself a model of empathy - not only for victims and their families, but also for the families of bullies, for kids who are wrongly accused, and for educators struggling to do the right thing, even when their responses are ineffective.)

 

In the end, Bazelon raises a larger question: What can we do, asparents, to nurture qualities of empathy and kindness in our children? How can we reduce the risk that they will get caught up in hurtful teen-age drama? How can we help them become “upstanders,” not bystanders, to meanness and cruelty?

These are great posters about bullying to use in your schools.  We can print these posters at CESA 5 if you are interested.  

jhenehan's curator insight, October 13, 2013 12:22 PM

This is an interesting representation about "safebook/facebook" and the ways in which one should share information. It shows people the ways in which to be safe while on facebook. The poster shows how you should think about what your posting before you post it. It reminds you to always be kind to others and to connect only with people that you know. Privacy is also very important. Make sure your settings on your facebook are very private. It also shows that people should report bullying and not just let it go. Bullying is a big problem, especially on social media.
