What You Need To Know About Cyberbullying (INFOGRAPHIC)

Do you know how your kids are using their tech devices? If you don’t, you could be failing to protect them from potential cyberbullies. Cyberbullying is increasingly prevalent, with one million kids falling victim to this vicious practice in 2011 alone. What exactly is cyberbullying? It’s defined as a form of bullying in which kids use the internet or mobile devices to harass or embarrass another individual. There are several sub-types of cyberbullying, including harassment, denigration, outing, trickery, exclusion and even cyberstalking. Cyberbullying can have devastating effects, yet kids don’t typically think about these harmful results when they’re using the web. Less than 40 percent of kids actually consider the potential effects of their online actions against others, and 51 percent don’t realize the potentially harmful consequences of posting photos or videos of themselves online.
