    To answer your question, it might be easier to explain ways to help prevent Cyber-bullying. To prevent Cyber-bullying, be careful about what you post. Always be kind to others. Don’t share anything hurtful or embarrassing to anyone. Never reveal your password to anyone, except a parent or guardian. Set your privacy settings so you know who sees what. Let your parents know what you’re doing online and who you’re doing it with. Let them friend or follow you. Follow their rules about what is and isn’t okay to do. Talk to an adult you trust about anything you see online that make you concerned. Report any and all Cyber-bullying.

    Well I cant give you facts but certainly my opinion.

    Basically every person has an asshole inside of them. Most people arnt confident enough to let the asshole out of them in public, but behind a computer screen nobody can hurt them so they can go aroun the internet trolling there *** off without getting hurt. These people are called keyboard warriorors (cyber bullies)

    So basically in my opinion Computers just give people enough confidence to take advantage of other people. see where Im coming from?
