Now on, I'd love to talk about this topic. Nowadays, we can find so much cybercrime and cyberbullying in this wide virtual world. Let's say, hacking, giving TERRIBLE critics and insult, money stealing via e-banking.
Personaly, I had been a victim of Cyber-bullying/Cybercrime. And for the exact time, when I was 11 years old. I used internet and social network. I used to play with friendster. Yep, that very popular at that time. Some strangers sent me pornography images and gores video. You know, I was totally you to see that. Let's take a peek to the other side, that was my mistake either. I didn't put the valid data. I was born on 1997, but people that required to play around the friendster is +16. The range of underages who play around was too much. It was flooding when one person promote it to the other one.
Move on to my topic, I will not stay to talk about the underages. Cybercrime and cyberbullying. But, I will talk more about Cyber-bullying since it is the big issues for teenagers. A lot of kids are being bullied in their real world nor the virtual world. Cyber-bullying suppose to harms the other people and a community. Cyber-bullying is not only happened in internet. Phone or text. Could be. Cyber-bullying is harmful and it is perfectly hurt. Have you ever been mocked by someone unknown? Isn't it hurts? I believe you would say, "I don't care, anyway." but in yourself you probably pissed off.
Well, I got a data about this creepy cyber-bullying:
In September 2006, ABC News reported on a survey prepared by I-Safe.Org. This 2004 survey of 1,500 students between grades 4–8 reported:
* 42% of kids have been bullied while online. One in four have had it happen more than once.
* 35% of kids have been threatened online. Nearly one in five had had it happen more than once.
* 21% of kids have received mean or threatening e-mails or other messages.
* 58% of kids admit someone has said mean or hurtful things to them online. More than four out of ten say it has happened more than once.
* 58% have not told their parents or an adult about something mean or hurtful that happened to them online.
A 2006 survey by Harris Interactive reported:
* 43% of U.S. teens having experienced some form of cyber-bullying in the past year.
Similarly, a Canadian study found:
* 23% of middle-schoolers surveyed had been bullied by e-mail
* 35% in chat rooms
* 41% by text messages on their cell phones
* Fully 41% did not know the identity of the perpetrators.
Personally, I've been bullied via cyber world and that was hurt. I was on hiatus from social network in 2 weeks. Someone sent me a hate e-mail. He was saying sarcasm words ang giving adult contents. Suckssss. I wanna scratch his face so bad. Move on.
Usually, the person that get bullied are the weak one, easy to get depressed, frustated, being scared then come to the mommy. The suspect of this cyber-bullying should realize this one. It affects people's mental stability. And it also affects suicide caused by depressing.
Well, that's all. I know this is prett hanging. Then again, my brain is about to explode just to think the other effects.
