Did you guys get that group text about Joanna?

I hate group texts so I didn’t open it. What did it say?

I love group texts! They make me feel so popular!

Well, I don’t think this one made Joanna feel very popular. It was really mean and shared personal information about her.

Oh no, that’s terrible. Who sent it and why? I don’t get it. Why would someone do that?

I don’t get it either, Nicki. Sometimes I just think people are bored and they stir the pot just for kicks. Or maybe for revenge when they don’t know how to deal with their issues.

I’ve got issues but I wouldn’t do that…

Cyber-bullying is becoming a HUGE problem across the United States, and the world, leaving many teens feeling lost, confused, alone and depressed. 

Cyber-bullying is similar to bullying, except that it happens online or via a hand-held device. Cyberspace is a unique world; it can make people feel anonymous and yet powerful, a terrible combination when it comes to bullying.

    I personally have never been a victim of cyber bullying but i can image it being really tough to deal with. I hear people say if your getting cyber bullying to just turn off the device but i feel like it is tougher then it sounds because it is very difficult to avoid the web. Also if the person who cyber bullies you knows you personally from school or an activity it become worse and turn into actual bullying. -WLKHS1418

    No, I have never been the target of cyber-bullying, I know that if I was it would not be a good feeling, but I would have to get back at them in some way. But Cyber bullying is a terrible thing, and I would never do it, and nobody should, unless that person really really has it coming.

    I have never been a target of cyber bullying. However, I know people that have been and the effects of what it can cause. I was friends with the person who got effected and my view point on them did not change. However, my view point on the people saying those things did.
