How do you feel about social media bullies?
Are social media bullies just as danger as real bullies? If no, why? If yes, why?
Yes words hurt whether or not you hear them in an ichat, over the phone, in a text, or in person. That's the key weapon of bullies- words. And while physical intimidation is part of it- they strike with words and destroy your confidence that way.
And I feel like the only way to get to them is to disallow them access on social media. People have enough to deal with online without worrying about someone making personal attacks on them. So as soon as that behavior appears, they need to be cutoff at the pass. And it shouldn't only be there but any network or site they violate policy.
Yes, they are very harmful to others they seek to belittle or whatever. The tongue is so small, yet it can be used to either lift up and encourage and bring life, or tear down and bring death. God speaks of this very thing in His Word. What is really bad is that with the Internet they can hide behind some other name or image than their real name and face, and just go to town harming others, or even worse they do not even care one bit!
I think they are just as bad, because negative info, drama, and hate can get viral.
