What does Cyberbullying look like?
- Abusive texts and emails
- Hurtful messages, images or videos
- Imitating others online to set them up
- Excluding others online
- Nasty online gossip and chat
How do I deal with cyberbullying?
- Talk to someone you trust right away— a parent, sibling, uncle, aunt, teacher or friend
- Don't retaliate or respond—they might use it against you
- Block the bully and change your privacy settings
- Report the abuse to the service and get others to as well
- Collect the evidence—keep mobile phone messages and print emails or social networking conversations
- Remember you didn't ask for this—nobody deserves to be bullied

Be sure to give acknowledgement by giving credit to someone's work by clearly stating their name, title of the work, year it was made, and a hyperlink.
