Being Bullied on Delete Your Account.

According to the Cyberbullying Research Center, about half of young people have experienced some form of cyber bullying, and 10 to 20 percent experience it regularly. Websites like contribute to this statistic very heavily.

Cyberbullying is a very real issue and websites like seem to be made for it. If you do not know what is, it is a site, much like Facebook and many other social media websites, that allows users to ask each other questions. That does not sound so terrible, but what makes dangerous to some teens is the fact that you can ask questions anonymously. Look around for a little bit and you will see many anonymously asked questions. Some may be perfectly fine, asking about the users day or favorite food. Other questions asked are not even questions. Some of the “questions” are just statements and because of the ability to ask anonymously, students can say very harsh things and never feel the consequences.

So what should teenagers who are being bullied on do? The simplest answer to the question is to just delete the account. Go to settings, click on profile, and deactivate the account. When someone starts to get bullied on any website, the bullying will probably not stop just because the victim asks the bully to stop. With, bullying is sure to continue because people have the ability to ask anonymous questions and will never have to pay for what they said.

Some people seem to think that there are ways they can avoid bullying and have the account. There is the option to let anonymous questions be disabled, but that will not solve all the issues. If someone really wants to say something to a person and not have that person know who they are, they can just make a fake account with a fake name and a fake email. This would take less than a minute and the person could ask anyone questions. Sure, the victim can block the bully, but they can say plenty of awful things before that happens. Even if they do get blocked, the bully can just create another account.

So, if you are ever being bullied on, or are being asked very inappropriate questions that make you feel uncomfortable, just delete the account. You will save your emotions from being damaged and you will have more time to do something more worthwhile.
