Sarnia Speaks: Cyberbullying
Time & Location
About the Event
According to the RCMP, cyberbullying “...involves the use of communication technologies such as the Internet, social networking sites, websites, email, text messaging and instant messaging to repeatedly intimidate or harass others. Cyberbullying affects victims in different ways than traditional bullying. It can follow a victim anywhere 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from school or work, to the mall or grocery store, and all the way into the comfort of their home - usually safe from traditional forms of bullying.”
Furthermore, the RCMP indicates that it includes:
- Sending mean or threatening emails or text/instant messages.
- Posting embarrassing photos of someone online.
- Creating a website to make fun of others.
- Pretending to be someone by using their name.
- Tricking someone into revealing personal or embarrassing information and sending it to others.
