What are the effects of cyberbullying?
It can cause low self esteem and even cause someone to kill themselves. For example, awhile back these two girls were friends. Then the mom of one of the girls pretended to be a boy on myspace and the other girl liked him. So then one day the mom posing as the boy said some terrible things to her. Then one day they found that the girl hung herself in her closet. It can also cause someone who is always bullied to snap and kill themselves or others.

Cyberbullying is a compound word. It was created by merging the word cyber, which references to the internet and computer, and bullying. It is spelled as one single word.
There are many pro-active activities and discussions that parents can have with their children in order to avoid incidents of cyberbullying or to address any early signs that …it may be happening. How to protect your child:Talk with your child about netiquette, how to behave and communicate politely over the Internet and other mobile devices. Importantly, teach children to never say something about someone online that they wouldn't say to that person face-to-face. Bullying others, online or in person, is never appropriate behavior.As mostly cyberbullying happens on social networking sites, so be "friend" with your child on these networksMonitor your child's internet activity with an internet monitoring software like Safetyweb (requires no download or installation, thus easy to use) so that you can make sure your child is not involved in such issue and is safe. Make sure your child understands that comments and images posted on the Internet can be long-lasting and have a global audience.Teach your child to keep the passwords to their online accounts private. Create passwords that are a combination of letters and numbers and are difficult to guess. Passwords should not be shared with friends, not even a best friend.Talk to children about how to handle strong emotions, such as anger. It is never appropriate to send a message or post a comment on the Internet when you are angry or emotional.If your child receives an angry or taunting message, teach them to refrain from responding and to tell a responsible adult. Responding to these types of messages could encourage a bully to continue to pick on the victim.Know how much time your child is spending on the Internet and mobile device.Enjoy the Internet with your child. If you are unable to sit down together at the computer, at least know what activities they are doing online. Consider installing parental control software to monitor your child's activities and limit the Web sites that are available.Encourage your local schools to educate the students on cyber ethics and the law.
A broken haert,an hopeless feeling, an unsfe feeling in cyberspace and more safe in your home and or room.
Victims of cyberbullying may experience many of the same effects as children who are bullied in person, such as a drop in grades, low self-esteem, a change in interests, or de…pression. However cyberbullying can seem more extreme to its victims because of several factors: It occurs in the child's home. Being bullied at home can take away the place children feel most safe.It can be harsher. Often kids say things online that they wouldn't say in person, mainly because they can't see the other person's reaction.It can be far reaching. Kids can send emails making fun of someone to their entire class or school with a few clicks, or post them on a website for the whole world to see.It can be anonymous. Cyberbullies often hide behind screen names and email addresses that don't identify who they are. Not knowing who is responsible for bullying messages can add to a victim's insecurity.It may seem inescapable. It may seem easy to get away from a cyberbully by just getting offline, but for some kids not going online takes away one of the major places they socialize. Cyberbullying can be a complicated issue, especially for adults who are not as familiar with using the Internet, instant messenger, or chat rooms as kids. But like more typical forms of bullying, it can be prevented when kids know how to protect themselves and parents are available to help.

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.

Cyber bullying has become increasingly easy due to the increase of technology, the easy access to the technology and the vast number of people involved in these technolo…gies for social reasons. Mobile phones and internet messaging(s) are the easiest ways to cyber bully people, particularly due to the fact that the victims are reluctant to withdraw from this community because of its social opportunities (it gives them an opportunity to talk to other people, not just bullies). However, this helps the bullies because it gives them easy access to the victim 24/7. It also makes the bully feel more safe as there is no direct physical contact and there is a general assumption that nothing bad can happen if you didnt 'really' do it (some people find the differenciation between internet and real life hard).
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.

People cyberbully because they want to feel good about them selves. When people get hurt inside, they take it out on people that they do not know. (Most of the time people don…'t do that) Cyberbullies can threaten you. If you get something you don't know, don't answer it even if it's really mean. If you do, you can get in trouble too.
