What is cyber bullying?
Cyber bullying is the use of electronic media - especially mobile phones and the internet - to intimidate, threaten or upset someone.
Cyber bullying can include:
texting scary or rude messages by mobile phone
sending unpleasant photographs by mobile phone
using online message boards, chat rooms or social networking sites to post cruel messages
deleting the victim's name from or ignoring their messages on social networking sites
What to do if you are being cyber bullied
Talk to your parents, carers or a teacher at your school. You may also want to chat online confidentially with a ChildLine counsellor or phone ChildLine.
