The Monster online

The Monster online

In highschool there was this really popular app called 2go… Damn! It was the buzz back then. I got my first phone I was about 12, couldn’t be happier. So I joined my first social media platform.

Cyber bullying

These may also be known as online bullying, This is a form of bullying that takes place via internet connected devices like tablets, smartphones. Online bullying also takes shape via social media, messaging apps, online games, etc.

Types of bullying/online monsters

  • Doxing: I have been a victim to this category sadly. This is when a personal information about you is released online for the sole purpose of humiliating you.
  • Harrasment: so this happened about two weeks ago, an unknown number messaged me a dick photo on WhatsApp (this is a social media app where you connect with people whom you sure you phone contact with, really amazing for this who like privacy).How he got my number is still unknown tho. The tournament didn’t end there, he went further to calling me names like slut,ugly bitch, fat hippo etc, for not acknowledging his “bigger than life” dick pic. Story short I blocked him and put a warning out to my sister’s out there to avoid future occurance.
  • impersonation: This is very common in today’s social media world. Once a friend’s Facebook was hacked by an unknown person (my guts kind of knew whom..) so this person went on to post false news and hate messages about me even going further to tag me. This is the creating of a fake account to post things that’ll damage the victims reputation.

“Unless and until our society recognizes cyber bullying for what it is, the suffering of thousands of silent victims will continue”. – Anna Maria Chavez

How To Slay This Monster

  1. Block the bully!:This has always been my first line of action.
  2. Limit social media time: This may seem harder at first but trust me there’s a whole lot of fun things to do offline, especially in this lockdown due to covid-19. My top 3 go to boredom killers are; Reading a book, Baking, writing.
  3. Privacy is key: This can never be over emphasised!

We can’t fight this monster if we don’t come together!

Ever encountered an online bully?

How did you over come it?

  1. Nice post. No I haven’t faced online bullying so far but did face bullying in real life. The worse thing was at the time when I was bullied I couldn’t voice myself against it but now at least I am happy that I haven’t broken down on my confidence due to all that. Nowadays people are facing a lot of online bullying which I am against and hoping that people someday realise how bad it is and just stop doing it.

    Thanks for this lovely post.
