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 Cyber; to mean electronically, by way of virtual computer over the internet or airwaves. Cyberbullying is bullying by texting and emailing people to embarras…s them 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!

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.

Momentarily, the bully may feel relieved, since that is what they use to release pressure. However, in the long-run, it can fuel their own self-hate and increase their perceiv…ed need to bully. So self-hate can contribute to bullying, and being a bully can contribute to self-hate, at least unless the bully is a psychopath. Sometimes the bullies are caught and dealt with, and if the bullies engaged in criminal activities such as threats or hacking, then they could get arrested. As for the victim, it varies. In a few cases, the victims might actually feel important or more alive after a few of those incidents. However, more typically, it increases their feelings of despair and powerlessness. They feel violated. They may feel hatred toward the bully. They may blame themselves. They may shut down emotionally and isolate themselves. If the victim of cyberbullying has had to put up with a lot of that before, or they have had to put up with other bullying, they may take their own lives. In some cases, the victims may become bullies. In some rare, extreme cases, they may even resort to extreme violence such as killing their bullies or going on a rampage.
