Re: [Chat] Cyberbullying

So we've all established that cyberbullying is through the use of phones, laptops, internet etc, I wonder why people chose to use those means though? Do they feel more powerful behind a screen?

Re: [Chat] Cyberbullying

I think people use cyberbullying coz its easy. More access and availability. I also think people think there are less consequences, like other people see physical bullying but less likely to see cyberbullying so they feel like they would get away with it.
That totally doesn't make sense, I don't know what I'm trying to say. I guess it's coz they can hide behind a screen.

Re: [Chat] Cyberbullying

People definitely feel more comfortable behind a screen.

 

  1. Talking to people irl in general can be intimidating.
  2. Being anonymous give you LOADS of power because you aren't accountable for anything.
  3. You can like delete stuff.
  4. You don't have to be face to face with whoever you're talking to.

I reckon people do feel more powerful behind a screen.  There's no physical confrontation or chance of getting hurt themselves.  they can only hurt the other person.
