This is Jackson. He is a "Digital Citizen". Like millions of people worldwide, he has access to the Internet via Social Media.
Hmm, I wonder what my friends are up to...
Social Media is a great way for people to interact online. You can talk, share pictures, and more from almost anywhere! But what Jackson may not realize is that sometimes the Internet can be a dangerous place.
Jackson's friends are talking about him behind is back. Unfortunately, the Internet can also be used to share mean things, or things about other people, such as an offensive image, or a message making fun of that person.
Did anyone see Jackson in the yearbook?
yeah he was so ugly lol
Sometimes cyberbullying can go further than just name calling. It can go as far as telling someone to commit suicide, sharing photos of them, or even exposing private messages or photos.
Are they talking about me? Why would they be making fun of me?
He's soooo weird! I bet no one would even care if he died lol
Sometimes the best thing to do when you encounter cyberbullying is to block them if possible. But if the issue is personal, then you should alert an adult and be ready to provide evidence.
