Did You Know...
How to Prevent Cyberbullying?
If You're Being Cyberbullied:
Are YOU the Bully?
- Refuse to pass along or spread cyberbullying messages
- Tell friends to stop cyberbullying
- Block all contact with cyberbullies
- Report cyberbullying to an adult you trust
- Speak with peers and adults to develop rules against bullying
-Do not tell friends your passwords to any of your social sites
- Trick the victim into revealing personal information
Cyberbullying is common when using social media. Typically, a cyberbully will...
- Pretend they are someone they aren't
- Spread lies and rumors about the victim(s)
In Maryland, research and studies have been done showing that many teenagers have and still are being bullied. For example,
1 in 10 teens have had embarrassing or damaging pictures taken of themselves without their permission on cell phone cameras
More than 1 in 3 teenagers have experienced cyberthreats online
259,563 Maryland youth have been victims to cyberbullying
-Block the bully.
-Hold the anger. It's natural to get upset by the bully, but that's what bullies thrive on. It makes them feel more powerful.
-Tell an adult.
-Try to view cyberbullying from a different perspective. The cyberbully wants to have control over your feelings so that you feel as badly as they actually do.

- Forward or send mean text messages
- Post pictures of the victims without their consent

You may want to:
-Seek revenge on the bully
-Avoid school, family, friends, and activities that once were fun
-Cyberbully back
