    Cyber Bullying

    People make comments on social media they might not say to someone's face. Despite the 'sticks and stones' adage, online comments can be very damaging.

    Cyberbullying can take many forms - abusive emails, impersonating others online, and sending photos that might cause embarrassment to someone. In some cases, cyberbullying can be a criminal act.

    If someone is bullying or harassing you online, we want to know about it. Please keep a record of threatening messages and contact your local police

    Cyber Bullying

    What is cyber bullying?

    People make comments on social media that they may not say to someone face to face. These comments on social media can be just as damaging as any other form of bullying.

    Cyber-bullying can be hurtful and in some circumstances it can also be a criminal act.

    Cyber-bullying can take many forms

    Abusive texts, on-line posts and emails
    Imitating others on line using fake profile and other methods
    Spreading rumours and telling lies on-line
    Making hurtful comments
    Making threats or comments designed to intimidate on-line
    Repeated unwanted messages being sent to you
    People using your account to send fake posts
    People sending photos or videos of you to others to embarrass or humiliate you
    Excluding others on-line


    What action can you take?

    Block the person who is doing the bullying
    Keep a record of threatening or intimidating messages
    Contact police about any threatening or intimidating messages
    Report the person to the social media platform
    Don’t reply to bullies – that’s what they want
    Check your privacy settings
    Talk to someone you trust about the situation



    What can police do?

    If someone is threatening bullying or harassing you on-line, police want to know about it. You don’t have to put up with it and police can take action.

    On-line bullies think they can be anonymous but police can track them down. That’s why it is important to inform police about what’s happening.

    While there is no specific legislation in Australia that is specifically for cyber-bullying, there are existing laws police can use to arrest and charge perpetrators.

    What laws can help police punish cyber-bullies?

    There is no specific offence for Cyber Bullying in NSW, however the person may commit offences under the Commonwealth Criminal Code, 1955. Division 474, subdivision C. Telecommunications Offences.

    Useful links:

    The Australian Media and Communications Authority has an excellent website called cybersmart which carries advice for children, parents and schools. http://www.cybersmart.gov.au

    The NSW Department of Education also offers useful advice.

    Indeed True!
    They should stop this, for it wouldn't give any benefits to people


    By the way, Sophia, new member in this forum.:-D
