Cyber bullying is more than a trespassing on one’s personal online space. It can be a devastating experience at the very least, which can possibly lead to disorders of suicide behavior. Teenagers are the most vulnerable to bullying social group, especially taking into account their current online activity. For this reason, some people suggest imposing legislative standards of what can never be expressed even in personal e-mails. But as cyber bullies gain momentum, it gets even more difficult to detect and hold them responsible.
Indeed, prevention of cyber bullying is like fighting Internet piracy. Everybody knows that the digital space is full of malefactors but people can hardly do anything to track them. Besides, some adults ignore their children being bullied considering bullying to be a routine conflict of teens. Or they prefer bullies to show up and deal with them in the real world. But still, not all cyber bullies protect their whereabouts as much as internet pirates, and it will not take a long time for digitally-skilled people to detect the person.
Perhaps, officials shall try to introduce a penalty for bullying people online. As many other methods of fighting bullies do not work, people shall hold them accountable for their real-life and online communication. It would help young people to realize that threats are not a nice way of kidding peers. Bullying is not a norm, and the faster people start to address it, the safer their life would be, both physically and emotionally.
