Cyberbullying is a big problem in the day and age of social media and Internet use, especially for young adults.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Studies from the AP-MTV “A Thin Line” campaign have revealed that in the past nearly 50% of 14-24 year olds have experienced cyberbullying of some kind. BackgroundCheck.us.org shares the online dangers of this experience for teens and parents.
Cyberbullying is a big problem in the day and age of social media and Internet use, especially for young adults. These teens know it happens and understand how it happens, but they do not know or are not concerned with how cyberbullying effects other kids.
According to the AP-MTV survey, 51% of young people have thought about posts on social media coming back to hurt them, but it still doesn't stop them from posting hurtful things about other kids. Cyberbullying can result in long-term emotional damage to its victims such as low self-esteem, depression, anger, failure in school, avoidance, and possible school violence or suicide.
BackgroundCheck.us.org shares that cyberbullying can be more harmful to teens rather than in person bullying because the permanence of online posts can cause a person to read them over and over again, more people are liable to see social media online, and the speed at which hurtful things online spread is very damaging to the victim.
Cyberbullying is no joke but we can help it from being stopped.
