ARE PHONES KEEPING BULLYING ALIVE IN SCHOOLS?

SmartPhone's are keeping bullying alive.

This is the opinion of leading American experts in MIT. Schoolyard bullying has been seriously reduced since 1999. Sadly the bullies many of whom are cowards have taken to cyberbullying instead. Online bullying is the only form of bullying growing. This ain't what Steve Jobs brought the world the iPhone to do.

  • 34% of kids will experience cyberbullying as kids
  • Girls are twice as likely to be the victims of cyberbullying.
  • Victims of cyberbullying have a higher risk of depression, even compared to victims of traditional bullying face to face.
  • Children are 7 times more likely to be cyberbullied by friends than by strangers.
  • Children who are bullied are 9 times more likely to be the victim of identity fraud as well

Instagram Threads is a new feature in it's 'Close Friends' option.  The new 'Auto Status' facility is causing a stir. It tells people (close friends) 1. Where you are 2. What you are doing 3.
