Cyber harrasment can be any of the following:
Text Messages: Sent to an individual or group of individuals using threatening statements and foul language in order to provoke fear in the recipient.
Picture Messages: Used to make the recipient feel threatened using explecit images that may cause fear or embarrassment and can be sent to numerous recipients. This has led to a bullying culture known as ‘Happy Slapping’ whereby the agressor will attack the person being victimized and then share the footage of the attack with others.
By Phone Call: which as the name suggests is a method of harrasment by calling a person/s and telling them of their intent to hurt,or cause them actual bodily harm.It can also be just simply phoning the person,harrasing him/her repeatedly, without speaking a word.
By Email: Sending emails to the person being bullied from an unspecified email address, or using the email of another person so as to shift the blame elsewhere,this can be used to send illicit photos and/or defamatory content that can often offend.
Instant Message (IM): This is where a person being bullied may receive messages in real-time using an Instant Messaging program that allows your child to conduct conversations with friends over the Internet.
