It's a great chance for people to meet friends or even dates, I go into this room and the GLBT room, This is place is cool, If you're bored you can come here! Anyways, in the chat rooms you end up talking to people for couple days and over time it seems like they become family almost.I'm not accustomed to be treated in the way like that, I am lucky,maybe. In fact, in the past, when a friend of mine (who approached me first) came to play a prank on me that got out of my hand with other friends, I thought something was weird and unfair. I knew 'that friend' could never be my friend, just a classmate. If there are no safety measures on the site to prevent cases of bullying then you should consider if it's a good place to spend your time.

Bullying leaves behind an emotional/ psychological scar which is almost impossible to cure. they bully people to feel superior and make their friends laugh but the bullies make big mistakes.
Problems arise when the technology that is supposed to bring people together is used instead to abuse others, pushing peers out of their social network into a world that is filled with loneliness, embarrassment, fear or shame.
Unlike other forms of bullying, the harassment, humiliation, intimidation and threatening of others through cyberbullying occurs 24 hours a day.
The victim can kill himself and till now, there are so many people who killed themselves such as Amanda Todd.
it is really a shame that people can be so inconsiderate and so cruel. Whatever happens, there won't be always someone to help the victim but the victim has to fight alone..
Today’s teens, having never known a word without the Internet, are especially adept at picking up new technology and use electronic communication to create vital social networks.
We can snap a picture on our phones, post a thought or share a joke with thousands of other people - all within a matter of seconds.
Their desperation can sometimes lead to acts of self-harm or tragically, even suicide.
We all have a voice in how to stop bullying and promote healthy relationships. Tell us what you think of the site, is there anything you would like to read more about, any issues we haven't covered?
Not witnessing the reaction of others makes it easier to become more aggressive and viscous.
