Answer Key:

Bullying has been around forever, but with new technology, bullying is taken to a new level. Cyber-

bullying is the term for any kind of harassment, embarrassment, or bullying using the Internet, cell

phones, or other interactive technology. A teenager involved in cyber-bullying can receive a

misdemeanor charge or a juvenile delinquency charge. However, if hacking or identity theft is

involved, it is a serious federal crime. It can either be done directly, or indirectly. The bully hacks

your account and posts negative things that cause your friends to turn against you, for example. The

friends are bullying on behalf of the bully. Examples of cyber-bullying locations are Instant

Messaging or Text messaging, Web sites, E-mail and Cell phones. Wow, has technology really added

a new method of bullying! Cyber-bullying has negative effects like sadness and depression, suicidal

thoughts and suicide, low self-esteem, violence, and problems in school. Cyber-bullying can be more

dangerous than traditional bullying. If you are not involved in cyber-bullying but you witness it

happen do something. Tell a trusted adult about what you saw and who was involved, and do not

encourage the behavior by laughing at it or sending it to your friends. Get behind your friends to

lend support and always fight against bullying.
