Any bullying that takes place using electronic technology is considered cyberbullying.
Here are some things to do, if you encounter a cyberbully:
- Don’t reply to messages from cyberbullies—even though you may really want to, this is exactly what cyberbullies want. They want to know that they’ve got you worried and upset.
- Tell someone you know and trust. You are not alone and you did not do anything to deserve this.
- Inform your Friends or family
