SOCIAL MEDIA BULLYING: MODERN WARFARE

image

Bullying is nothing new. It has been a consistent problem for generation after generation. However the times have now changed since new technology has made it possible for peers to bully one another without even having to be face to face. Social media has become a well-known pastime of young individuals today. Websites that allow interactions on a social basis are usually considered social media sites. These forms of media offer individuals a portal for entertainment and communication.

Cyber bullying can take many forms:

  • Sending mean messages or threats to a person’s email account or cell phone
  • Spreading rumors online or through texts
  • Posting hurtful or threatening messages on social networking sites or web pages
  • Stealing a person’s account information to break into their account and send damaging messages
  • Pretending to be someone else online to hurt another person
  • Taking unflattering pictures of a person and spreading them through cell phones or the Internet
  • Sexting, or circulating sexually suggestive pictures or messages about a person

Cyber bullying can be very damaging to adolescents and teens. It can lead to anxiety, depression, and even suicide. Also, once things are circulated on the Internet, they may never disappear, resurfacing at later times to renew the pain of cyber bullying.

Many cyber bullies think that bullying others online is funny. Cyber bullies may not realize the consequences for themselves of cyberbullying. The things teens post online now may reflect badly on them later when they apply for college or a job. Cyber bullies can lose their cell phone or online accounts for cyber bullying.

I believe it’s important to be educated about Cyber Bullying because it will help prevent it from further happening. It will show bullies just what reactions they are causing to the victims emotionally, and will show the victims that it is OK to consult an adult about it. If we were to educate people about cyber bullying, it could show people that there is a very bad problem going on right this moment. Victims don’t speak up. Schools just don’t notice it, so it is the educated ones jobs to seek it out and help the issue. Once something is posted on the internet it will stay there forever, and if you know how to use a computer or mobile device, you can see just what is happening to your child or what your child is doing to others.

Wherever you go in the Philippines, you will surely see people wearing smile in their face. We, Filipinos, are known as positive in dealing with life’s hardships and challenges. Rain or shine, calamity, crisis, whatever we encounter in life, we will still find our ways to be happy.

Based on a recent study on Asian countries’ Happiness Index conducted by Eden Strategy Institute, Philippines was named the third happiest among five countries in Asia. The country scored 90 points in the Happiness Index, which the Eden said is based on more than 200 million social media accounts in the five countries covered by the study. According to Eden Strategy Institute, the happiness in the Philippines comes from a sense of large, extended families. Being a mostly Catholic country, many Filipinos have a predisposition to look for the best in everyone. They are taught from young to support the underdog, find joy in hard work, and smile at hardships.

What does someone do to inspire you? I believe that each of us have someone we look up to; someone who could touch our hearts and motivates us to do something. Many people do things simply out of the kindness without realizing that they are inspiring others to do the same thing.

Life is just a simple word yet it has a deeper meaning. Most of us may have understood its true value and worth but there are some who are still on their journey on finding the meaning of life.

Life, as we know it, is very hard and challenging. We are all born to encounter problems and hardships that we have to overcome during our life journey. These challenges can be easily overcome if have sufficient knowledge, skills, confidence, and faith. These challenges can also help us to become a better person by means of continuous life learning experiences. Life, though it is very challenging, should be looked upon in a positive way. Living with the three C’s of life will help us to cope, decide, change, and live our lives to the fullest.
