Cyberbullying: 5 Steps to Combating & Documenting

Cyberbullying: 5 Steps to Combating & Documenting | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

While starting a new school year can be exciting and fun, it can also be tough for children of any age — dealing with new teachers and new students, and continuing the friendships (and rivalries) that they formed during the previous year. But these days it’s even more difficult for students as school dynamics and drama have a significant presence online, essentially coming home with the child through digital devices and social media.

 

Cyberbullying is probably the most threatening issue that children face when they’re online, and social networks play a significant role in the severity of this issue. For the same advantageous reasons that make social media a great tool to help victims of cyberbullying, it can also be used to perpetrate cyberbullying, especially among teens. According to the Teen Internet Behavior study that was conducted by McAfee, “Almost one in four teens claimed to be a target of cyberbullying and two-thirds of all teens have witnessed cruel behavior online”.

OSSEO, MN-- Seventeen-year-old Kevin Curwick, an Osseo High School football team captain, is using Twitter to fight cyber bullies and compliment his classmates, but much to his surprise, now people across the world are returning the favor.

 

"A nice word can go a long ways," he said. "We are a society looking for the positive."

 

Curwick has heard from people from Iowa to Connecticut, and from Australia to England ever since he came forward behind the anonymous Twitter account, @OsseoNiceThings.

 

He created the "nice" Twitter account to lift spirits of classmates that had been bullied on another Twitter page, but remained anonymous when tweeting things like "great artist but even better friend", "Osseo's rawest rapper", and "puts others before herself."

10 Incredibly Simple Things You Should Be Doing To Protect Your Privacy

 

Please tell me you have a password protecting this.

Over the weekend, I wound up at Washington, D.C.’s Trapeze School with a group of friends. Before one of them headed up a ladder to attempt a somersault landing from the trapeze bar, she handed me her phone and asked me to take photos. “What’s the password?” I asked. “I don’t use one,” she replied. My jaw dropped as it often does when someone I know tells me they’re choosing not to take one of the very simplest steps for privacy protection, allowing anyone to snoop through their phone with the greatest of ease, to see whichever messages, photos, and sensitive apps they please.
