In the age of the Internet, bullying has taken on a new shape: cyberbullying, or the act of intimidating or terrorizing someone online. Surprisingly, about 85% of teenagers have said that they have experienced being bullied online at least once.
The “Take No Bullies” Campaign
In order to address the increasing incidence of cyberbullying, MySecuritySign.com has launched the “Take No Bullies” campaign. By creating social media “stickers,” the project seeks to put a stop to cyberbullies on social media networks. According to Michael Miles, MySecuritySign’s Social Media Manager, the stickers would help promote “responsible digital citizenship” among students in schools and libraries. Miles is also the designer of the anti-bullying stickers.
Social Media Messages on Bullying
Miles explains that since teenagers today use different social media channels, MySecuritySign has come up with a variety of stickers that carry messages specifically about bullying. Some of these messages are:
• Is your status more important than their feelings? (Facebook)
• Instarespect (Instagram)
• Bully-free board (Pinterest)
• Respect. Reblog it. (Tumblr)
• Tweet others as you want to be tweeted. (Twitter)
Furthermore, the campaign is also being spread online through the hashtag #TakeNoBullies. Stickers may be purchased through http://www.mysecuritysign.com/no-bullying-signs. Those interested may also read more about the campaign via http://www.mysecuritysign.com/take-no-bullies.
