    11 Facts About Cyber-bullying

    Post by Vidou on Tue Dec 15, 2009 2:19 am

    • 1. Nearly 35% of kids have been threatened online and almost one in five have had it happen more than once.
      2. Among this percentage, being ignored and disrespected were the most common forms of cyber bullying.
      3. Nine out of ten middle school students have had their feelings hurt online.
      4. About 75% have visited a Web site bashing another student.
      5. Four out of ten middle school students have had their password(s) stolen and changed by a bully who then locked them out of their own account or sent communications posing as them.
      6. About 21% of kids have received mean or threatening e-mails.
      7. The psychological and emotional outcomes of cyber-bullying are similar to real-life bullying outcomes, except for the reality that with cyber bullying there is often no escape. School ends at 3 p.m., while the Internet is available all the time.
      8. The primary cyber-bullying location where victimizing occurs, at 56%, is in chat rooms.
      9. Girls are about twice as likely as boys to be victims and perpetrators of cyber-bullying.
      10. About 58% of kids admit someone has said mean or hurtful things to them online. More than four out of ten say it has happened more than once.
      11. Cyber-bullying has increased in recent years. In a national survey of 10-17 year olds, twice as many children indicated they had been victims and perpetrators of online harassment in 2005 compared with 2000.

    Those are all true.
    But remember that chat rooms and such ar'nt all bad. They do improve confadince and self esteem because there talking to someone whom can't see them. Which means they are not being like ignored because of how they look.
    But that could also be a bad thing because you don''t know whom your talking to.
    So everything on the internet could be good or bad.
