Pictures of Cyber Bullying

We showed you a dozen posters and signs about anti-bullying, but today we are going to focus on cyber-bullying pictures.  As we mentioned, cyber-bullying is when the bullying takes place on the internet, computer, cell phone, or other electronic device.  Basically, it just means when somebody is messed with out in the world and not necessarily to their face in person.

As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, so by showing people cyber-bullying pictures and sending them to your friends, you can get the word out and help people prevent cyberbullying.

In this picture this is a classic example of someone being harassed over the internet.  Mean messages like this are very hurtful and can lead to depression and anxiety among other things.

This one is a great picture because it appeals to facebook users.  Spreading the word about stopping bullying on Facebook is a wonderful way to make a difference.  Kids and teens need to learn that cyber bullying is not acceptable, not cool, and not tolerated.

This Say No to Cyberbullying picture would also make a great poster or sign.  These words are SO true: Be careful! Once it’s said, the web is fed.”  Teenagers don’t often realize the consequences of posting derogatory pictures or posting mean comments on the internet.  Once it’s out there, there is no getting it back sometimes.  It can cause people problems for the rest of their lives.  Teens need to think twice before posting anything on the internet and they should think twice before sharing personal information or photos.

This is a cool cyberbullying picture. The fist coming out of the monitor makes it clear that just because it’s coming over the internet and not in person doesn’t mean it’s not just as harmful and dangerous.

report cyber-bullying

This is a good pic to encourage people to report bullying.  Many kids and teens are afraid to report it so it continues to happen and escalate.

This last picture is great for a poster or a sign.  You could post this outside a school, daycare, or any public place. Help us stop cyberbullies!

Anti-Bullying-Posters

There are lots of anti-bullying posters available.  Hanging anti-bullying posters in public places such as classrooms and hallways is a great way to get the word out and try to deter bullying.

Here are some anti-bullying posters commonly found on the internet.  Some of these are actual posters and some are just anti-bullying pictures.

This message says it all. “Think before you speak. Is it true? Is it helpful?  Is it inspiring?  Is it necessary?  Is it kind?  If not, then don’t say it!   What a great message.  We should all try to think before we speak more often.

I like this poster a lot too.  Stop bullying. “Don’t act a fool to be cool.  Bullying – you don’t have to do it to be in.”

This poster gets the point across that bullying is not cool.

no bully zone poster

This is a great anti-bullying poster to hang basically anywhere.  This one would even be great as an anti-bullying sign you could post out front of a school or daycare.   The more awareness you can give people the more likely kids won’t bully and the more likely other kids will report it when it happens.  The No Bully Zone is an excellent poster.

This bullying poster is awesome even though it doesn’t have any words.  It just shows how damaging and hurtful bullying can be.  If teens can really get it and really let it sink in that bullying is harmful and really hurts people deep down, then maybe they will stop doing it.  Great poster!

anti-bullying stickers

These aren’t posters but are anti-bullying stickers.  These are awesome stickers for teachers to pass out in classrooms.  Kids love stickers and they will put them on notebooks, folders, books, etc.  They will also make their way into the home where parents can get the message.  It’s a great way to spread the word and get the message to people outside the schools.

Here’s another No Bully Zone poster.  But this one also highlights friendship and people sticking together.  Also, notice the racial differences in the two hands.  This is a nice subtle way to get the message across to stop bullying and to take up for other people when they are being bullied.

school violence poster

This is another great poster; this one goes beyond bullying and touches on school violence.  Bullying often leads to violence and the earlier you can stop it the quicker you can prevent it from happening and spreading.

There are literally hundreds of bullying signs and posters out there.  Just scour the internet and find the ones that best fit your needs.  This post has been primarily about anti-bullying but the next post will be all about internet and phone related cyber-bullying pictures, so be sure to check it out as well.  Together, we can make a difference.

What is Cyberbullying?

Cyber-Bullying Information

cyber-bullying

Many people ask what the difference is between bullying and cyber bullying.  The answer is simple.  Cyber bullying is done over some means of communication using technology, most commonly the internet or cell phones.  Cyber bullying can take on many forms and come in a variety of ways.  Some examples of cyber bullying include the following:

  • Sending threats, mean message, cuss words, and derogatory comments to someone’s phone through text messages or to someone’s email
  • Posting hurtful messages in the comments section of websites or blogs, or posting mean messages on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter
  • Hacking into someone’s account to get personal info and sharing it with other people
  • Catfishing – or pretending to be someone you are not, to cause problems for someone else
  • Taking or finding photos of people and sharing them on the internet without permission

As with regular bullying, cyber bullying is extremely serious and is a growing problem.  It is especially dangerous for children, teenagers, and high school students.  Not only does cyber-bullying lead to stress, anxiety, and depression, but it has also lead to suicides and deaths.

Cyber-bullying Statistics

According to recent surveys and polls 50% of teenagers say they have been bullied by other people online, and surprisingly 50% say they have cyber bullied others in some shape or fashion.  Those are very alarming numbers.  Obviously there are different degrees of cyber-bullying and things get a lot more dangerous when threats are involved.  Nearly 34% of kids polled said they have been threatened on the internet. 1/4 of them claim they have been harassed and bullied frequently.  The vast majority of these kids and teenagers do not tell their parents they were bullied and do not report the bullying to any authority figure.

Types of Cyber Bullying

We’ve discussed different forms of cyber-bullying already, but these are the specific types: text bullying, facebook bullying, twitter bullying, email bullying, comment bullying, and blog bullying.

Types of Bullying (regular)

Bullying at school, bullying at work, physical bullying, name calling, bullying on the bus, and group bullying

Bullying in the Media

Bullying has become a hot issue over the past several years, mostly due to the internet.  Cyber-bullying has caught the attention of tv shows with huge audiences such as the Doctor Phil Show.  Talk shows like that have dove in to this growing problem and interviewed both the bullies and the victims, as well as the parents of those involved.  Even more recently, shows such as Catfish have aired, showing the dark side of the internet and how cyber-bullying really affects the lives of the victims.

Many people search the internet for cyberbullying pictures and anti-bullying posters, so the main purpose of this blog is to educate people about bullying and provide you with lots of pictures.  The more we can get the word out, the better the chance that young people will see our messages and get educated about bullying.  If one less person bullies there is at least one less victim.  Every person counts.
