the fact that this social deficiency becomes part of teenager’s norms. It’s a great step back to

humanity if we try to tolerate such actions insinuating other people to cause jeopardy in whatever

terms towards their fellow teenager.

The research is conducted for the teenagers to be aware of their surroundings around the

internet and also to educate the teenagers that cyberbullying is not fun or cool and being a bully or

victim won’t benefit anyone, cyberbullying is a societal concern which need to be shattered. Social

media is considered a platform to connect with others and also to share their feelings and thoughts

about a certain thing or issue but all of the sudden it is used now to bash and to spread inappropriate

pictures of teenagers us being the model of this era it is a privilege to stand as an example to our

fellow teenagers as they are vulnerable of cyberbullying.

According to the telegraph, cyberbullying makes young people more than twice as likely

to self-harm or attempt suicide, a major new study has shown. The growth of social media has left

many youngsters vulnerable to online bullying, which can include sending threatening, humiliating

of intimidating messages or posting hurtful comments or images. Around one third of young

people claim to have been victims, but the new research suggests it can have damaging and deadly

consequences. Researchers at the Universities of Oxford, Swansea and Birmingham reviewed

previous studies which occur cyberbullying involved more than 150,000 under-25s across 30

countries over a 21-year period. They found that the cyberbullying the risk of self-harm or suicidal

behavior 2.3 times. Professor Ann John, of Swansea University Medical School, who led the study,

said: “Prevention of cyberbullying should be included in school anti-bullying policies, alongside

broader concepts such as digital citizenship, online peer support for victims, how an electronic

bystander might appropriately intervene; and more specific interventions such as how to contact

mobile phone companies and internet service providers to block, educate, or identify users

“Suicide prevention and intervention is essential within any comprehensive anti-bullying program

and should incorporate a whole-school approach to include awareness raising and training for staff

and pupils”.


According to Maryanne Gaitho Information and communication technology has

changed rapidly over the past 20 years with a key development being the emerge of social

media. The pace of change is accelerating. For example, the development of mobile

technology has played an important role in shaping the impact of social media. Across the

globe, mobile devices dominate in terms of total minutes spent online. This puts the means

to connect anywhere, at any time on any device in everyone’s hands.

According to Bahati Russel, one of the biggest things that people of online communities

tend to overlook is the fact that words do hurt. Although these things that are hurtful are not being

said online, saying them online can amount to just as much hurt and maybe even more, Bahati is

a witness and a victim of cyberbullying and have seen the effects that it can have on the victims

and overall online communities that play a part with it. Cyberbullying is easily seen and more

accessible on social media sites just because of the social freedoms that the sites allow us to have.

he hope that in the future, social sites can find some way to automatically delete any type of cyber-

threatening posts; he would love to do all within his power to try to stop the online bullying that

occurs. In this post he will talk about why cyberbullying should be stopped, its effects on social

sites, methods that could be taken in order to prevent it.


Extortion is a crime in which one person forces another person to do something against

his will, generally to give up money or other property, by threat of violence, property damage,

Damage to the person’s reputation, or extreme financial hardship. Extortion involves the victim’s

consent to the crime, but that consent is obtained illegally. A classic example of extortion is the

“protection” scheme where figures with ties to organized crime demand that shop owners pay for

their protection to prevent something bad (such as an assault on the shopkeeper or damage to his

or her store or goods) from happening.


According to Lisa Neuman that cyberbullying assiociated with depression and

dissociation in teens ,relatively new phenomenon known as cyberbullying has been found to

exacerbate existing mental health conditions among adolescents, according to new research

presented on the opening day of the Annual Meeting of the American Psychiatric Association


At particular risk, the study revealed, are teens who have previously experienced emotional

abuse.Cyberbullying—which has become more and more common and has received wide media

attention in recent years—is considered as behavior meant to intimidate another using electronic

technology, such as cell phones, computers, and tablets. More specifically, it utilizes

communication tools such as social media sites, text and instant messages, chat room

conversations, and other web-based technology.1Rumors spread through social media,

embarrassing photos and videos, and fake profiles with embarrassing details are just a few

examples of how cyberbullying is conducted. It differs from in-person bullying in that it can

happen anywhere, anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, not just limited to times when the bully

encounters his or her victim in person.In some cases, cyberbullies remain anonymous, attacking

without revealing personal information, but distributing damaging messages and images very

quickly and to a very wide—and also widely unknown—audience.1 In these cases, it can be

impossible to trace the source of the inappropriate or intimidating messages, which can make it

very difficult to delete them once they’ve been posted.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics and Bureau of Justice Statistics, in the

2014-2015 school year, 21% of students nationwide experienced cyberbullying.2 Similarly, the

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in its 2015 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System,

indicated that an estimated 16% of US high school students were cyberbullied in the 12 months

before the survey was taken.3

In the study presented at APA, the researchers, led by Samantha B. Saltz, MD, chief resident at

the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Jackson Memorial Hospital, looked at

cyberbullying victimization among 50 adolescent psychiatric inpatients between 13 and 16 years

of age. They related cyberbullying to social media use as well as histories of adverse early life


They found that most of the study participants engaged with at least 1 type of social networking

site 1 or more times a day. Fifty-four percent of the teens used Facebook, 53% used Instagram,

33% used chat rooms, and 30% used Twitter at least once a day. Out of the 50 participants, 20%

(10 teens) had been victims of cyberbullying, while only 6% (3 teens) admitted to being the


The 10 cyberbullying victims reported that several social networks had been used to bully them: 6

had been bullied on both Facebook and Instagram, 4 had been bullied on Twitter, and 3 had been

bullied inside a chat room. None of the victims reported being bullied by e-mail.

The emotional effects of cyberbullying, according to the study results, included symptoms of

depression and dissociation, as well as anger. Previous episodes of emotional abuse were

significantly correlated with cyberbullying, while other early-life traumas, such as physical and

sexual abuse and physical and emotional neglect, were not.

The research team suggested that educating adolescents about the healthy use of technology, social

media in particular, may be helpful.


According to the Very Well Family, there is nothing easy about cyber bullying. In fact,

it can be a traumatic experience for teens who are targeted. The pain and distress

victims experience impacts almost every aspect of their lives leaving them feeling lonely,

isolated, vulnerable, and anxious. What’s more, these consequences of cyber

bullying linger long after the bully has moved on to another target. No one would argue

that victims of cyber bullying are subjected to stressful situations. Whether they are

threatened, cyberbullied, or experience name-calling, these types of bullying have a lasting

impact. And after prolonged exposure, victims of bullying can develop adverse reactions.

Some victims of bullying will experienced to depression even thoughts of suicide. But,

they also can anxiety disorder. And this is a very rare specially on social media sometimes

we might want to post something but we are having second thoughts about it because we

are afraid that we might be judged by our looks or use our pictures for scam.


By Justin W, Patchin Catfishing at least in the online world refers to the practice of setting

up fictitious online profile. Misleading another on social media with the intent to cause harm is not

new. In 2006, 13-year-old Megan Meier began an online relationship with a boy she knew as Josh

Evans. For almost a month, Megan corresponded with this boy exclusively online because he said

he didn’t have a phone and was home schooled. One day in October of that year, Megan received

a message from Josh on her MySpace profile saying “I don’t know if I want to be friends with you

any longer because I hear you’re not nice to your friends.” This was followed by bulletins being

posted through MySpace calling Megan “fat” and a “slut.” After seeing the messages, Megan

became distraught and ran up into her room. A few minutes later, Megan’s mother Tina found her

daughter hanging in her bedroom closet. Though she rushed her daughter to the hospital, Megan

died the next day. Six weeks after their daughter’s death, the Meier family learned that the boy

with whom Megan had been corresponding never existed. Josh Evans (and his online profile) was

created by Lori Drew, a neighbour and the mother of one of Megan’s friends. She created the

profile as a way to spy on what Megan was saying about her daughter. Drew was

eventually acquitted in federal court for her role in Megan’s death. Another, more extreme

example, is the case of Anthony Stancl, a New Berlin, Wisconsin, 18-year-old who in 2009

impersonated two girls (“Kayla” and “Emily”) on Facebook. He befriended and formed online

romantic relationships with a number of boys in his high school (again, while posing and

interacting as these two girls). He then convinced at least 31 of those boys to send him nude

pictures or videos of themselves. As if that weren’t bad enough, Stancl – still posing as a girl and

still communicating through Facebook – tried to convince more than half to meet with a male

friend and let him perform sexual acts on them. If they refused, “she” told them that the pictures

and videos would be released for all to see. Seven boys actually submitted to this horrific request,

and allowed Stancl to perform sex acts on them, or they performed sex acts on him. He took

numerous pictures of these encounters with his cell phone, and the police eventually found over

300 nude images of male teens on his computer. He was charged with five counts of child

enticement, two counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child, two counts of third-degree

sexual assault, possession of child pornography, and repeated sexual assault of the same child and

received a 15-year sentence in prison in early 2010.
