Once upon a time, two high school students called Laura and Becky were using social media on their lunch break.They came across a picture of someone in their year group online.
The photo online was posted by a student at their school and was of a girl in their class. The boy had posted the photo without the girl's permission and commented: "How fat and ugly does April look in this photo LOL".
After lunch, Becky and Laura spoke about the photo they had seen online. Becky asked Laura what she thought about the post. "I don't think it's very nice to post photos of people online ! What he wrote was so mean ! " said Laura.
Becky and Laura agreed that mean behavior online is just as bad as mean behavior in the playground. Becky recalled learning about cyberbullying in class and both of the girls decided to speak with their teacher about what they had seen at lunch.
Becky and Laura spoke to their teacher after class and explained what they had saw online. The Teacher was wondering why April hadn't shown up to school that day and thanked the girls for standing up to the cyber bully by telling an adult.
