What is Cyber-bullying?

Cyber-bullying is bullying using a mobile phone and/or the Internet, for example, when a person:

  • Sends nasty or threatening emails or messages on the Internet or via mobile phone.Sends mean or nasty comments or pictures about others to websites e.g. MySpace, Facebook; MSN or to other students' mobile phones.
  • Deliberately ignores or leaves out others over the Internet.
  • Pretends to be someone else online to hurt them or make them look foolish.

Cyber-bullying can happen through text messages/pictures/video-clips/emails etc being sent to you, but also when these things are sent to others, about you.
