Bullying is a big issue in this world and sometimes you don’t even notice it happening. You can bully someone verbally, physically and you can also do it using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, this can really affect someone quite seriously and could lead to depression, suicide and many other mental illnesses.
Here I have provided for you advice and tips to help you stay safe online. If you are under thirteen you aren’t allowed on Facebook but there are still social networking sites with no age restrictions that let children talk in chat rooms with random people around the world.
What should you do if you are being bullied online?
Tell someone you trust like your parents, your teacher or your friends.
Take photos of the messages because the culprit can delete their messages but you will have evidence to prove they did bully you.
If it starts to get out of hand call the police and they will sort everything out.
If you are getting bullied don’t be afraid to tell someone because if you don’t it will get worse and the sooner you tell someone, the safer you will be. Bullying doesn’t just happen to kids and teenagers, it happens to adults as well. If you do know someone who is getting bullied and hasn’t reported it, encourage them too.
