1. Cyber Bullying is a serious issue in today’s schools and business. If everyone adopted and educated people on netiquette guidelines would this issue be solved? Explain Cyber bullying has become a well-known issue for a lot of parents to start worrying about with their children. Unfortunately this is not something that will go away unless we educate people on how harmful this is. It is a way for people to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person for either their own game, or they think it is funny. For the people on the other end of the bullying it is not a joke, and is taken very seriously. There have been multiple cases of children, teenagers, and even adults being bullied online to the point of taking their own lives. In these types of cases the offenders are getting punished for the crime; however there are many more cases that have not been brought out in the public eye. Some people are afraid to tell others, they may fear it will get worse or they just have no one to turn too. In fact 58% of children/teenagers have not told their parents, and surprisingly 53% of kids actually admitted having said something mean or hurtful to another person online. By educating people, old or young, on what harmful effects can take place, and the severe consequences that they may face could possibly help prevent fewer of these cases. Will it completely solve the problem? No, in my own opinion this is something that will always be happening no matter how hard we try to teach people and give them examples, there will still be people out there not caring or having respect for others. Take drugs for example, you can teach your child the harmful effects, the consequences, and the laws but there are still people out there that do it. The best we can do is show the facts, and hope people will listen. 2. If I post a poem on Facebook site and someone cuts and pastes it
