The movie Cyberbully (Cyberbu//y) is a story about a teenaged high school girl who gets Cyberbullied online on a website called: Cliquesters. She learns that bullying onli…ne is terrible and that people think it's okay. Her best friend makes a fake account and bullies her there too! So basically, Cyberbu//y is a story on Cyberbullying and how bad it can get
Essentially cyberbullying as we know it started shortly after the Internet came into being (around 1983). As soon as someone started being critical of someone else via int…er-computer communications, it could be considered bullying. We could probably argue that it began with the first computer chat rooms, which were on non-networked systems at universities in the early 1970's. The firstdedicated online chat service that was widely available to the public was the CompuServe CB Simulator in 1980.
Answer Cyberbullying quite simply started when the internet became a common tool for anonymous users to say what they please without thinking of the consequences to th…e other anonymous users on the internet. So really, cyberbullying most likely started in the mid 90's when the internet became immensely popular. Answer Cyberbullying has been around as long as the venue for it has been around (the internet). When America Online launched in the early-to-mid 1990s, and "surfing the web" first became popular, cyberbullying was born.
Cyberbullying is illegal in some situations, such as when it involves a threat to person's physical safety, when it involves coercion, when it involves an act based on hate or… bias against certain protected populations, and when it involves sexually explicit images of minors.
Cyberbullying Cyber; to mean electronically, by way of virtual computer over the internet or airwaves. Cyberbullying is bullying by texting and emailing people to embarrass t…hem and hurt their feelings. Texting is the most popular way. Cyber or internet bullying is where you are being bullied over the computer. This can be done by people leaving messages on websites, Bebo's, Facebook, my-space and even general bullying over messenger programs. This can really hurt a persons feelings and is not a good thing to do as it just shows cowardliness. Most bullies, when stood up to, will back off and leave you alone. If you are being bullied you can however save the comments or conversation and show it to police officers. It is unlikely that they will do a lot but it can result in them confiscating the bully's computer and things similar to that. Cyberbullying is when you go to places like chat rooms, or other places where you can connect with people and the people that you talk to say mean things or offensive types of stuff or sometimes sexual comments and things that just make you feel uncomfortable. An example would be if you were talking to someone you didn't know in a chat room and they say " GIVE ME YOUR ADDRESS OR I WILL COME AND KILL YOU!" something like that. It is very scary and cyberbullying should be stopped and if that is happening to you, tell someone you trust and let them take care of it and don't go to that place again!

Cyberbullying involves recurring or repeated harm willfully inflicted through the medium of electronic text. In order for it to be cyber-bullying, the intent must be to cause …emotional distress, and there must be no legitimate purpose to the communication. Cyberbullying can be as simple as continuing to send e-mail to someone who has said they want no further contact with the sender, but it may also include threats, sexual remarks, pejorative labels (i.e., hate speech). Cyber-bullies may disclose victims' personal data (e.g. real name or workplace/schools) at websites or forums, or may attempt to assume the identity of a victim for the purpose of publishing material in their name that defames or ridicules them. Some may post victims' photos, or victims' edited photos like defaming captions or pasting victims' faces on nude bodies. One famous forum for disclosing personal data or photos to "punish" the "enemies" is Hong Kong Golden Forum. Cyberbullying is when you're on a site or MSN or some sort of cyber talking site. And then they start talking to you, and soon become so nasty and start to call you names and start using unsuitable words. A cyberbully is a type of bully that does his work online. His/her words can be so rude and hurtful that they may be capable of affecting your behavior. Sometimes their words hurt as much as being physically bullied. Such acts should be reported to Supervisors. Supervisors will let them off with a warning first, but if this does not end, they will be blocked. But, unfortunately, cyberbullies may make a new account, and continue their acts of violence. But they will be blocked again. Avoid these bullies. If you feel that you are being cyberbullied on this site, Please report it in the community forum, or to any supervisor. Action will be taken.
Nobody started cyberbullying. I mean, did one person invent regular bullying? No. As long as there have been humans, there have been humans bullying each other. Once the i…nternet became popular, in the early-to-mid 1990s, bullies discovered they could do ten times as much damage on the internet, and with far less consequences than they faced for their bullying in real life.
Yes, and you can also be put in jail.
Cyberbullying has several causes. Like every other type of bullying, the bullier is usually an individual who puts others down in order to build him or her self up. Cyberbul…lying simply utilizes a new form of communication. Thus, besides the normal factors of low self-esteem, difficulties growing up, and problems in family dynamics, cyber bullying is also caused by (often unrestricted and unsupervised) access to this new medium of communication.
