Cyberbullying is when one person or a group of people aim to threaten, tease or embarrass someone else by using a phone, the internet or other technology.

The school bully is quick to exploit new methods of bullying which means the problem is not left at the school gates.

Many pupils are being targeted with cyberbullying in their own homes, on Facebook, phone calls, Text Messages, silent calls, on instant messengers including BBM and by abusive websites and forums set up to cause humiliation and embarrassment.

Fortunately, no matter how careful the bully is to cover his/her tracks, there is no hiding place in cyberspace and the police can track their digital fingerprints down to an individual computer or mobile phone.

Thankfully most bullies don't use their brains and don't realise the simple things such as

Mobile telephone operatore store ALL text messages for several years these can be retreived and used in court if needed

Internet operators (isp's) save copies of all emails sent and again these can be retreived and used in court if needed

Deleting items off a computer does not mean they are deleted, if you write something on your computer this can be undeleted and used in a court of law so if you'r a bully who does such things, Please use your brains now and stop. If your a parent of anyone being bullied online or through their phone then please get in contadct with the police, they can have your computer inspected and retreive all avidence off it, and if your a child afraid to tell anyone then please talk to someone.
