The internet is regarded as the most used source of social media to exchange information all over the world. It has countless functions, playing a vital role in everyone’s daily life, useful for entertainment and everyday work, but it’s often abused by people.
Cyberbullying is real, and so are the consequences of it. Victims of cyber bullying often find it hard to share such experience with their friends and family which makes the problem even bigger. Sufferers from cyber bullying can have difficulties focusing due to the stress they are experiencing and often lose interest in stuff they once enjoyed. It is important to be aware of the impact cyber bullying can have on someone, especially nowadays when most of us would struggle to go a day without using the internet.
As technology improves more and more people become more curious which leads them o breaking the rules and stealing information from other computers on the internet. Hackers can get information about anything from a person who is not educated on internet safety, information such as bank details, addresses, phone number, personal letters and much more. To avoid hackers, you can store personal information in a separate floppy disk or buy a firewall and many other things. It is important to be educated on cyber bullying and internet safety because it is such a big part of our life and can have big impacts on our mental health and future, but sadly too often we don’t even notice the negative effects of the internet because we don’t know what to look for.
