Ways Cyberbullying Shapes the Internet

Cyberbullying is shaping the internet in many ways. What was once a place where people could feel safe is becoming very unsafe. The effects of cyberbullying on the net are becoming apparent in social media. When a picture is posted or shared it can become very hard to remove from the internet. Also there is a lot of concern over suicide rates in kids who have been victims of cyberbullying. The difficultly in removing pictures, videos or other forms of cyberbullying materials can make the embarrassment very long term. As an online game player I see online bullying on an almost daily basis. People constantly yelling at people over a headset or in a public chat inside a game is rampant. As something that comes in many forms cyberbullying is very hard to avoid on the internet and can greatly impact someone's internet experience.
