Advancements In Technology Cyber Bullying Statistic's 2013 1990 2000 2004 Statistic's 0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c VICTIM Ryan Halligan What is Cyber Bullying? While bullying generally takes place in a school environment or work place, this new form of bullying, called cyber bullying, takes place in the cyber world. With access to cell phones and the internet with the touch of a finger, adolescents are at risk of being harassed, threatened, embarrassed, or humiliated via cyberspace. Cyberspace Laws How many teenager's do you think over all cut, burn, or ect.? Conclusion: These boundless so called, “betterments”, built in society are subsequently destroying our younger generations and leading many to depression and or a devastating suicide. The Negative Impact of the Advancements in Technology:
Cyber Bullying VICTIM Arcata High Survey:

Earliest forms of communication include pictograms, signals and, of course, language. Over time, communication has always advanced in order to be more efficient, from homing pigeons to the computer. What started as a government effort to smooth out communication hang-ups on national security issues has turned into a worldwide web phenomenon.
The USSR launched the first artificial satellite named Sputnik into space. As a counter act, the US government creates the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA). They do so in an attempt to become the world leader in science and technology. 1957
John Vittal develops MSG. This is the first all–inclusive email program that offers reply, forward and filing capabilities. 1975 The Internet is introduced to the public. World.std.com becomes the first company to provide Internet access through dial–up. 1990 1995 Companies like CompuServe, America Online and Prodigy begin to provide online connections through traditional dial–up services. Households across the world go online. The size of the World Wide Web is estimated to exceed 1 billion pages.
The first SMS message was sent in December 1992 from a personal computer to a cellular phone. 1995 1992 Myspace, Gmail, and Facebook launched. 2004 2007 Apple releases the iPhone in the United States. iPhone users can access social media sites and apps through their phone. Accompanying these vast advancements in technology, follows the alarming consequences of the younger generation being driven to depression or even suicide. Thesis: Cyberstalking is the use of the Internet, email or other electronic communications to stalk, and generally refers to a pattern of threatening or malicious behaviors. Cyberstalking may be considered the most dangerous of the three types of Internet harassment, based on a posing credible threat of harm. Sanctions range from misdemeanors to felonies. Cyberstalking Cyberharassment differs from cyberstalking in that it may generally be defined as not involving a credible threat. Cyberharassment usually pertains to threatening or harassing email messages, instant messages, or to blog entries or websites dedicated solely to tormenting an individual. Some states approach cyberharrassment by including language addressing electronic communications in general harassment statutes, while others have created stand-alone cyberharassment statutes. Cyberharassments When his father shares deep emotions in this video, he does a wonderful job showing just how big of a toll it took on the community and what the consequences of Cyberbullying can do not only to the target, but also the family. Lori Drew was indicted under a federal anti- computer hacking statute for impersonating a young man on MySpace to gain the trust of an emotionally troubled teen, Megan Meier, who killed herself after the cruel joke spun out of control. Megan Meier Drew's conduct was irresponsible, but was deemed not criminal. It may deserve social sanction, already dispensed in great quantity, and perhaps civil liability to Megan Meier's parents. But if Drew is convicted under criminal law, virtually every Internet user will face the consequences. Result: Communities Reaction?
“As a language arts teacher, I teach communications,” Calabrese (teacher from Torrington Middle School) said. “Cyber-bullying is part of communications. ... The subject of cyber-bullying has not been studied very much. Due to increased technology in my classroom and the fact that language arts is essentially about effective communication, I decided to start the school year with online communication as the topic. A text that really sparked interest was an article on cyber-bullying that I got from a teacher magazine. That article mentioned the stories of Megan Meier and Ryan Halligan, among others. Students really took to these stories."

"Once you hear her personal story, it becomes more real,” Calabrese said. “By the end of Thursday, I think we will have 1,100 wiser kids." 2003 Vermont Torrington, Connecticut 2006 1957 So what? Who cares? The United States must open its eyes and realize that the consequences that may occur accordingly to these praised advancements in today’s society, may not be worth the improvements. California State Laws: “Seth’s Law” (2011) requires school policy and investigation processes. This was named after 13 year old Seth Walsh who
committed suicide after being harassed about sexual orientation and identity. July of 2011:
