Terror on the Internet (Cyber Bullying)


ALISA: DEDRA BAKER AND HER
DAUGHTER ARE EXPERIENCING
SOMETHING THEY NEVER EXPECTED,
CYBER BULLYING. DEDRA BAKER: HER BEST
FRIEND WAS, HACKED INTO
HER FACEBOOK ACCOUNT, BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER HAD
LOGGED INTO HER FACEBOOK
ACCOUNT ON HER FRIEND’S LAPTOP. SO SHE WAS ABLE TO LOG
INTO HER FACEBOOK AND SHE
CHANGED THE EMAIL ADDRESS AND THE PASSWORD SO THAT
WE COULD NOT ACCESS IT. AND THEN SHE GAVE THE
EMAIL ADDRESS AND THE
PASSWORD OUT TO SOME OTHER PEOPLE FOR THEM TO GO IN
AND POST ON THE COMMENTS
AND POST PICTURES. AND THEY POSTED
PORNOGRAPHIC MATERIAL
AND SAID SOME VERY PORNOGRAPHIC THINGS ABOUT
MY DAUGHTER ON HER
FACEBOOK PAGE; THEY POSTED THEM
AS COMMENTS. ALISA: A TERRIBLE
THING TO HAPPEN. AND HER REASON? DEDRA: WHEN THIS LITTLE
GIRL WAS APPROACHED ABOUT
WHAT HAPPENED, WE ASKED HER
WHY SHE DID IT. SHE SAID SHE DIDN’T
WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH
MY DAUGHTER ANYMORE. ALISA: DEDRA AND HER
DAUGHTER LEARNED AN
IMPORTANT LESSON; ONE SHE WANTS TO SHARE. BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR
USERNAME AND PASSWORD. AND? DEDRA: ONCE IT’S ON THE
INTERNET, IT’S OUT THERE;
ANYBODY CAN SEE IT, EVERYBODY CAN SEE IT. IT’S JUST LIKE WHEN YOU
SAY SOMETHING, ONCE YOU
SAY SOMETHING, IT’S ALREADY BEEN SAID;
YOU CAN’T TAKE IT BACK. SO ONCE THOSE THINGS ARE
POSTED ON FACEBOOK, THEY
CAN’T BE TAKEN BACK. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF THEY
WERE DELETED, YOU DON’T
KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE HAD ALREADY SEEN THEM. ALISA: A HARD LESSON TO
LEARN FOR A YOUNG TEEN AND
HER FORMER BEST FRIEND.
