There are many forms of online harassment, and many names used to describe these types of harassment, including cyber bullying, trolling, flaming, doxing, outing and fraping. Regardless of the approach, the perpetrators use personal information, abusive messaging or bullying behaviour to cause you emotional distress. Social media is typically the platform of choice for perpetrators and they tend to hide behind fake profiles – or hacked profiles – to target victims
- Try not to engage – Like most bullies, perpetrators of online abuse are in it to get a reaction and see evidence they are causing harm. Don’t play into their hands and get into a fight online. Simply ignore the comments and there is a chance the individual will move on to another target.
- Avoid deleting content, unless it includes personal or sensitive information – Deleting comments shows that they have been read and often prompts the abuser to post more frequent and more harmful abuse. People who read the comments – from your family to complete strangers – will spot the comments for what they are and ignore them. However, if the comments include personal information (such as contact details) or sensitive images that you don’t want online then delete immediately.
