Cyberbullying is using technology to deliberately and repeatedly bully someone. By reporting it, talking about it and supporting each other we can stop it.
How do you deal with it?
talk to someone you trust straight away—like a parent, sibling, uncle/aunty, teacher or friend
don’t retaliate or respond—they might use it against you
block the bully and change your privacy settings
report the abuse to the service and get others to as well
collect the evidence—keep mobile phone messages and print emails or social networking conversations
remember you didn’t ask for this—nobody deserves to be bullied
