Mighty Rasing's curator insight, August 16, 2013 9:19 AM

Cyberbullying is in the news again. And we really need to educate young people of the need to protect themselves online.

 

"It was following the revelations that Hannah Smith, 14, had killed herself after being bullied extensively on the social networking site ask.fm. I can’t remember my brother’s exact words, but it was along the lines of: “Do you think we need to look at this? Is there a problem with the Internet?”

 

Yes, it’s a topic that needs to be debated in an open and frank manner. The Internet continues to grow exponentially and it’s right that we take stock of what it has become every now and then.

 

In my view, the way that young people access the Internet and communicate with one another online does need to change. But not from the angle that politicians, campaign groups and disgruntled parents are trying to tackle it."

Christian Troiani's curator insight, November 10, 2013 2:11 AM

This article focuses on the problem of cyber-bullying taking place worldwide with over half the cases occurring on the Facebook social media network. It emphasises the fact that cyber-bullying is an extreme form of bullying which has devastating effects on victims. The article clearly and effectively conveys the message that cyberbullying should be taken seriously by stating some alarming statistics and consequences victims of cyber-bullying face. It states that young people are distressed and harmed due to the fact that unfavourable content about them is exposed to many people. The article conveys its message of the seriousness of the issue with the statistic that one million young people in Britain are subjected to extreme online bullying and that 37% of them experience the bullying on a highly frequent basis. It adds that cyber-bullying has been found to have catastrophic effects on the self esteem and social lives of young people.
