Cyberbullying is a cruel and mean thing to do. It’s a form of public humiliation and could even lead to suicide. I once cyberbullied someone. This person was a close friend of mine. Not only did I lose his friendship, I lost his trust, his family’s trust and even my parents’ trust.
What is cyberbullying? It’s making fun of someone via the internet. Making jokes, name-calling, threatening, or any other form of bullying on the web (videos, blogs, social network pages, etc.) is considered cyberbullying. As I said before, it is a public form of humiliation and has devastating effects on its victims.
The friend that I lost was really hurt when he found out that I was the cause of him being cyberbullied. I’m really sorry for doing that. It was supposed to be a joke, but it ended up really hurting him. I apologize to this person to no end.
Because I lost my best friend, I learned a lesson; a lesson everyone should learn.
