According to StopBullying.gov, there are several ways you can respond to cyberbullying:
- Do not respond to the offensive message; instead, print them out or take screenshots of them for documentation and proof.
- Block the person who has sent the offensive messages. This is possible on many social media sites.
- Report the incident to the social media site.
- Know when cyberbullying is considered illegal and contact law enforcement if it happens. It is illegal if you are physically threatened, sent pornographic images (of children and adults) or sexually explicit messages, have your privacy personally violated, or are stalked.
