Online safety is no longer a luxury.
London, UK (PRWEB) March 23, 2015
NoBullying releases today its book “Your Guide to Cyber Safety” via Amazon. The book explains the statistics, numbers and famous cases related to threats of cyber safety as well as tips and tricks on how to achieve the optimum state of online safety.
This book, titled “Your Guide to Cyber Safety,” is written to educate parents, teachers and teens about the short and long term effects of neglecting the practices of cyber safety, such as cyberbullying, trolling, hacking, and identity theft as well as revenge porn.
NoBullying believes that all types of cyberbullying, stalking and online harassment can be prevented with the use of the correct methods of education and awareness about cyber safety, especially with children and youth. This is the main reason for the need to understand the techniques and tricks for employing online safety in every way possible. Cyberbullying is a serious wave of hate and putdowns that changes lives and spreads negativity every single minute unless everyone posts online responsibly and learns the concepts of information privacy, NoBullying asserts.
NoBullying’s editorial team pointed out the fact that these series of books serve a bigger purpose, which is the accessibility of information to parents. While the NoBullying website provides various articles and resources on matters such as cyberbullying, Internet trolling, doxxing, revenge porn and cyber stalking, as well as the latest on sexting and hacking, it is essential to have all of the necessary information in one book that is easy to go through, which provides easy access and feasibility to users, especially busy parents and teachers.
The books are also sponsored by HeadsUp, which is an online platform developed to help identify negative activity by children on social networks. Parents and educators make up a large part of the NoBullying.com team of editors and developers, who, together, have created an effective application that helps educate and protect children online. The purpose of HeadsUp is to alert and inform parents if it finds that their child is a potential victim of cyberbullying or is involved in negative online behavior.
Ciaran Connolly, Co Founder of NoBullying, says, “Online safety is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity in this day and age. From cyberbullying to online harassment and trolling, as well as hacking, the Internet world can be an extremely dangerous place.”
While NoBullying realizes that children and teens look at the online world as a “rules-free” place where they can do whatever they want away from their parents or teachers' supervision, it also realizes that parents need to remind their loved ones of the potential dangers they could face if they aren’t aware of the true practices of online safety.
Connolly also added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the potentially sad outcome of neglecting online safety and photos safety. According to Connolly, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.
NoBullying.com features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals, as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing bullying worldwide, as well as inspirational bullying poems and famous bullying quotes.
The website regularly updates its bullying statistics and cyberbullying statistics as it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is. It also regularly runs cyberbullying surveys and questionnaires to get recent updated statistics on everything related to cyberbullying.
He also added that anyone suffering from bullying in any form or way can always find advice and help on the NoBullying website – but if anyone is suffering from severe bullying or cyberbullying, the best thing is to talk to someone locally – a parent, teacher or local organization that has been set up to help with specialized councilors to deal with this topic.
