Taimai Huang's insight:

There are several resourceful, official websites that list steps, effects, ways and who to involve to stop cyberbullying. School should educate students and make them more aware of how serious cyberbullying it can be. Victims can go to the website and call a number and ask for help if they're too afraid to go to loved ones.

Taimai Huang's insight:

People may see cyberbullying as "no big deal" or students should just "get over it" but they don't realize the reality that is going on. Kids skip schools, they run away or even commit suicide to escape the bullying. This video displays the facts that are greatly overlooked.

STOP cyberbullying: Preventing cyberbullying

What cyberbullying is, how it works and how to understand and deal with cyberbullies.
Taimai Huang's insight:

For this article, I'm going to use the Stake Holder Analysis. The group that I'm target will be students in junior high school to high school because that is the age where cyber bullying is most prone. A great idea to show how cyberbullying impacts everyone is by holding more classes or seminars to educate the students on how cyberbullying can impact someone. This would give positive reactions because if students can see how much they're affecting other people, they would stop.

Arturo Bejar is trying to create empathy among teenage users to curb cyberbullying and harassment.
Taimai Huang's insight:

Facebook is a great start to try to end cyberbullying with the options to "report a harmful photo" or post. Arturo is doing his best and strong believes that it's slowly working. Sometimes people don't even know they're involved with some act of cyberbullying because you can't see their expression or reaction. But with the help of emojis and stickers, it has helped even though it sounds silly.

Back when we were young, parents would monitor our use of the TV and hand held games. They should do the same with social media sites and how their children are using it. If parents start to be more aggressive with their children's use of social media and what they're posting, it may be able to reduce cyberbullying.

Taimai Huang's insight:

I have previously stated that holding seminars and classes can educate students about cyberbullying. Another thing that I almost missed was that communication about the bullyer(s) can be reformed to be more effective. 

 

Four types of communication includes:

1)Nonverbal: Victims can cross their arms and show the bullyer that they are not going to listen to what they say
2)Attentive Listening: Confrontation can be intimidating but works. confront why the person is bullying you because there are usually personal issues such as abuse at home to lead them to take it out on someone else.

3)Understanding & Controlling: Try to understand the situation and forgive the bully for victimizing you. They probably didn't know how else to deal with their problem but pick on someone else.

4)Stress Management: Tell the bully to talk to a counselor or pick up some hobbies to relieve their stress.

 

These ways can help decrease cyberbullying from the source. Other types of communication can be found in the link:

Bullying is nothing new but identifying the problem early is crucial to keep it in check. And the obvious starting point is the home, writes Intan Maizura Ahmad Kamal
Taimai Huang's insight:

This is such a great article where the author describes how complex bullying has become since the old days "thanks to social media". One of my favorite theories within communication is the "Cognitive Dissonance Theory" because we go experience cognitive dissonance everyday. A reason why this theory correlates with cyberbullying is because it's usually a group of people bullying one person. People int he group may feel that it is wrong to bully the person but they do it anyway because they think it's okay since their friends are doing it. However, if other students/teachers can pinpoint sources and voice out how wrong bullying is then the people experiences the cognitive dissonance will stop to dissolve the uneasy feeling. 

 

This article was great to read because it basically sums up how to pinpoint the source of bullying, what to do about it and how we can stop it.

Cyberbullying Resource » Spiral of Silence Theory

Taimai Huang's insight:

A Theory that I remembered that went very well with this topic was the Spiral of Silence. The Spiral of Silence is basically when a person is afraid to voice their opinion when they feel that they are the minority. So the victims of Cyberbullying keep quiet because they feel that if they reach out for help, they'll only get shut down even more. This creates the "Sprial of Silence" so other people who are victims of cyberbullying participate in this spiral. To help the victims of cyberbullying, it should be clear that people who are fallen victims should be able to reach out for help without feeling scared. Faculty and staff in school can hold seminars or classes to teach children the effects of cyberbullying and that they are always there to help. Even confidentiality will most likely decrease the spiral of silence!
