    To protect myself from a Cyberbully, I would make sure to be aware of what’s going on in my social media and the social media of my friends. I would make sure to spread positive messages all around and to report any hateful or negative comments someone may post. It is not nice for someone to make fun of someone else or to spread hate towards someone if they are on social media. That applies to face-to-face contact, as well. We should all spread as much positive energy and light as possible because we all are human beings and no one deserves to be treated as if they’re not good enough.

    To avoid cyberbullies on the web, most websites will have a block or report button and thats how i usually deal with them.

    A major way to protect yourself from a cyber bully is to surround yourself on social media by people you know, love and trust. If you wouldn’t be friends with someone because they are hurtful, then don’t chose to become friends with them on social media. Also, always be kind to people and you, usually, will get the same treatment in return. Surround yourself with positive people and you will have positive influences in your life. If you do become cyber bullied, speak out and ask for help from adults or loved ones and block the cyber bully and seek comfort in your loved ones if you do become hurt. The best thing to do is not let it get to you, because odds are is that they are hurting and that is why they are trying to enforce harmful words onto others. Remember! You are amazing just the way you are and what someone else says about you doesn’t change you or who you are, you are still amazing.

    Know who follows you on your social media. Always thinks before you post because once it’s out there, there’s is no going back! There is nothing wrong with disagreeing with someone else’s opinion/post; however, know that it is not worth causing a scene and that cyber bullies are always braver behind the screen. Remind yourself that their primary motive is only to bring others down and if you are their target, do not give them what they want by letting them bring you down; otherwise, they win. You have nothing prove to anyone but yourself! And never be afraid to tell someone about it.

    Now that’s summer is around most teens are going to be guilty of overusing social media. But social media isn’t always a bad thing, unless you encounter a cyberbully. To try and protect yourself from them, don’t let people you don’t know or you know put others down follow you. Also, don’t comment any mean things either. If someone does start posting harmful things, block them, report them, and tell a parent. Try not to get yourself wrapped up in any drama, even outside the phone, because it will come around. Make sure no one knows your password so they can’t hack you. Lastly, be safe. Cyber bullying is not a joke, but it can be prevented. Have a great summer!

    The best way to stay safe on social media is know who follows you and who you are following. Think before you post. If you’d be ashamed for your parents to look at it, it’s probably not something you should be sharing with the outside world. What you post is a reflection of yourself, make sure it is a positive one! Respect yourself and be proud of your image. Always remember that your pictures and information can never really be erased, so don’t post anything you might regret later. If you are experiencing ANY forms of bullying or harassment, block the person responsible. If it continues, tell your parents or a trusted adult. If you see someone else being bullied, speak up for them, private message them and tell them you got their back, but never engage with the bullying or the person bullying. Let an adult help, that’s what they are there for. 🙂 Stay safe, have fun, and be positive.

    I can protect myself from a cyberbully by avoiding drama and unnecessary/bad-outcome situations. Just leave the drama for the llama!

    Understand the conversation and situation you are placed in, try and reason with said cyberbully, and remember that you’re never alone nor are the other victims. Watch how you think the conversation is and act within social media environments in a friendly and peaceful, nothing is worth being mean or putting yourself in the situation where someone is mean to you. Supervise to make sure no one is being cyber-bullied, and if you or someone else is, report it. Bullying is never okay, no matter what environment.

    Think about what you post. Think would you want your parents to see this. Be kind to others online. Don’t share post that could hurt or embarrassed or could be harassing to anyone, think about would you want someone to share a bad post about you. Only friend people you know. Keep your parents up to date, Tell them about any suspicious activity you see. Listen to what your parents have to say about you is alright to do.They care and want you to be safe.

    When you see someone getting bullied on social media, dont join in with everybody else and put the person down. We should stick up for them and stand up for the rights of the students

    always be careful of what you put on the Internet! Once it’s out there it can never be taken off! As well be cautious of who you interact with on social media!

    An important way to stay safe on social media is to be mindful of what you are doing. Do not accept people who you do not know, and do not talk to people that are not familiar to you. If you are made uncomfortable by a situation or conversation, do not backlash in anger. If someone threatens you online, do not delete the messages. Report them, then talk to the police if it is necessary. Do not be afraid to block people online. Those who are negative influences or those who upset you should not hold power over you. With summer break starting, you should be spending your time having fun with your friends. Do not allow someone online to pull you down and upset you.

    There are several ways that you can protect yourself from a cyber bully this summer as internet and social media usage increases with the absence of school. One way is to only add people to your social media network that you know well such as close friends and family. Never add strangers to your social media or allow them to view your profile. This way, you can avoid the occurrence of cyber bullying entirely by preventing it from even happening. If unfortunately though, you have already experienced cyber bullying, then it would be best to look through the settings of your social media accounts. Many social media platforms such as Facebook and Snapchat allow for users to block others. Typically, this prevents them from initiating any sort of contact with you via that platform. If cyber bullying becomes unmanageable, be sure to contact an adult and let them know of the situation so that further action can be taken. Also, allowing parents to monitor social media accounts can help deter cyber bullies from persistent harassment on social media pages and also creates open communication between yourself and a trusted adult should this situation arise. If someone is harassing you by sending private messages, be sure not to respond as this only adds more fuel to the fire. Save all messages sent by the cyber bully and report it to an adult immediately. No one deserves to be cyber bullied and if you or a friend is experiencing this, please report it to an adult and ensure that the situation is resolved, even if you have to go to several people to get it taken care of.

    Be aware of what you are doing on the internet and know who you are friends with. Do not accept friend requests from people you don’t know and stay alert to prevent yourself from getting into bad situations. Think before you put things on the internet for they can never be permanently deleted.

    Cyber bullying is serious and you can help yourself to prevent being on the wrong end of it or even being the bully. Always watch what you are posting on social media because you don’t know what may be offensive to someone. Only talk to people that you know so you don’t set yourself up for more trouble. Be safe and be positive, it will go a long way!

    Make sure not to put out any personal contact information on the web for people to see. Also if there are any “fights” don’t get involved! Remember to just be positive!!(:

    Make smart choice on the internet, and do not give anybody your account passwords. If you feel like you are being cyberbullied (or you see others being cyberbullied) let a trusted adult know. Also, make sure you do not friend any strangers.

    Make sure what you post is never offensive and steer clear of any negativity. If you are a victim, be sure to report it immediately, do not take it personally, and always keep an adult informed of what’s happening.

    Never join any group chats if you do not know the people no matter how bored you are, do not add anyone you do not know and if your unsure of someone block them. make your time on social media websites more interesting by doing group chats with your mates or playing games against your friends.

    One way to protect yourself is to not get in any drama or escalate a fight on the internet. People might come back and start attacking you and if this does happen tell a parent before it gets out of your control.

    Be cautious of who you befriend on any social media. Cyber bullying can be very harmful to anyone in any way so you should always report anything negative even if it doesn’t harm you personally. If it does harm you then you need to talk to someone you can trust.

    Make sure you only “friend” people who you know personally in order to avoid bad situations with strangers. If you yourself are cyberbullied or you witness bullying occuring, let a trust worthy adult know and make sure the situation is handled.

    Be careful who you talk to on the internet and never put yourself in a bad situation. If you see another person being cyber-bullied you should report it immediately.
