    Tomorrow at 9pm, Channel 4 will show a one off show on Cyber-bullying based on real life examples. Cyber-bullying affects so many people every year, so it's important that we encourage awareness around it. Take a look at this article, click here.

    Will you be watching Cyberbully? If so, keep us up to date. What do you think? Is this a good idea?

    I've seen that too but no this is different because the main character in this is the cyberbully.

    I watched it. It was good. Although I'm pretty sure that wouldn't happen in real life.

    I know the plot was a bit far fetched. As she could have just shut down the laptop from the beginning

    Yeah. It really did. Especially the fact that people think it's okay to cyberbully because 'everyone' else does it

    Exactly, like with Jennifer everyone just made fun of her without realising she is a normal person with problems of her own. If it does the job of making people aware of what trolling can do, then I think it is a success for channel 4 as it's a growing problem and people often don't realise the extent of their actions until it's too late unfortunately

    But the hacker had threatened to post up those selfies so she was too frightened of that happening because then she would end up being the victim of the cyberbullying?

    I know. I think it's had a bit of an impact on me personally. At the beginning I was quite baffled as to how Casey could be a cyberbully when she was the 'victim' until it became apparent that she was clearly the one in the wrong. Then I started to side with the laptop stalker. Lol
