What's Different About
It can feel like it's all around us - unavoidable.

There are not necessarily physical injuries or in-person witnesses.

Negative comments and images can be distributed very quickly to large groups.

Negative comments absolutely impact us emotionally, but don't leave the same sort of trail and evidence.

It can be anonymous.

After an image, post, or text has been made, it's VERY hard to delete.

Your Instagram?
Your Snapchat?

How to Make an Online Report?
Every social media site is different & defines abusive content as different.

Context is important. Inside jokes, might not be seen as abusive.


•Pages that identify and shame private individuals,
•Images altered to degrade private individuals,
•Photos or videos of physical bullying posted to shame the victim,
•Sharing personal information to blackmail or harass people, and
•Repeatedly targeting other people with unwanted friend requests or messages.

Unfriend a person.
Block a person.
Report a post.
Untag yourself / delete from timeline.
