    I'm writing an article on bullying and cyber bullying and i am just wondering if it would be possible if anyone out there could tell me some of there own experiences on the subject.

    I know that it is a hard subject to talk about for victims of bullying however i would say that by helping me to write an article on it, this will increase the awareness of bullying and help stop it in the future and also help victims of bullying come forward.

    Any replies would be great.

    Thanks everyone

    I don't really understand the term cyber-bullying, to be honest. To me, it only applies if the people don't know each other in "real life"... and if that is the case... stop logging in to be "bullied"?? Seems like madness if you ask me.

    I'm aware that, these days, a lot of kids are bullied online / on facebook by people from their school or who they know from elsewhere... but I'd just call that straight up bullying, not cyberbullying. Anyway, with regards to Facebook bullying, I think part of the problem currently is that the current generation of parents / teachers (of teenagers) aren't particularly "tech savvy"... they don't understand it really, they didn't grow up with the internet, and they just aren't particularly aware of it and the things that their teenagers are subjected to (or saying / doing themselves) on social networking sites. There's also very little education concerning the "online life" that teenagers are more and more involved in these days. Even 10 years ago, the Internet was a sort of "niche hobby" and seen as a bit geeky... now, everyone is online, and online interactions are mainly with real-life aquaintances.

    I suspect it'll be slightly different in another 10-20 years, when the parents of teenagers are "our generation", who grew up around this sort of technology.

    Thanks your imput is greatly appreciated
    Do you think schools, to a degree, would be providing a greater service if they monitored students facebooks etc, although schools may not be able to do anything about it outside of school times they would however be more aware of the bullying?
    Only a very small percentage of children who are victims of bullying tell teachers.

    I used to think that - but then, I was on a forum that was (basically) the same, technology wise, as this one... in 1999! 14 years ago :eek:. Seems like this stuff doesn't move on as fast as you'd expect!

    Yea but I bet in 1999 you didn't use to browse a forum like this on your phone, or portable tablet, or through the medium of dance. Confused about that last one? Nanobots man, nanobots.
