  1. so this girl constantly bullies this girl online on facebook, calls her things like ugly, disgusting, A back stabber and a bi*** who steals and lies. all while the victim of the bullier has to deal with being a bit.. slow i feel awful and ive reported it to facebook but the girl keeps doing worse things like putting fake profiles up of the victim and making groups that say they hate the victim and she has “followers” who go along with the bully and say mean things to the victim as well.. i know the victim is hurt by it and has tried countlesly to delete her fb whenever she does the bully hacks it and her email and puts mean statuses up about her is there anything at all i can do about it? 🙁 i dont see the victim anymore because i moved but i still feel bad she has to go thru that

  2. I have one best friend. We’ve known each other since we were 4. She’s the only one I can really be myself around. I have four other friends that I can hang out with, but I kind of have to watch what I say… you know? I have a youth group of girls that are awesome to be around, too. That’s about six people in there. Other than that, I don’t really have many friends. I’m not very good at talking to new people. I always like to have at least one friend I can be backed up on in any situation. I’m going into high school this year, and I’m kind of nervous that my friends won’t be in my classes. I know that I should make new friends, so I guess what I’m asking here is:

    How DO I make some new friends? (I know it sounds lame..) I don’t really do any extra curricular things, except a club or two.
    And how do I become less dependent on my old friends to get through a social situation?

  3. Alright so I was just on a friends facebook and I clicked on one of their past profile photos.

    The comments start off with one guy commenting on my friend’s haircut calling him the usual insults, ending with fight me, etc.

    That’s not what I was wanting to report though because he backed off and it cooled down.

    These girls came in, and were bashing the kid telling my friend to fight him.
    The guy who was telling my friend to fight him has a sister.
    The sister went and told the two girls who were bashing her brother to leave him alone.

    The two girls then proceed to on the photo for one thing, girl number 1 I’ll call her talked about how her dad was a police officer and how she could “report them for threatening” my friend (the one who’s photo this is).

    BUT, then the two girls proceeded to bash and bully my friend’s sister with insults, curse words, and just a lot of nastiness.
    The part where I started to think I should report this is when the comments from both girls said
    “hunny FIGHT ME (: Let’s kill the bitch (;” and continued to talk about killing her, ending with “She gunna dieeee”
    They talked about Not just fighting her, but the word kill was used multiple times as well as harassment and bullying.
    The first killing comment was just for the record made from girl 1 who claims to have a father who’s a police officer.

    The only reason why I am iffy about reporting it to secret witness is because it was last year , June 2012 (the picture I clicked on was fairly old.) or else it would have been reported already because I personally do not tolerate cyber bullying of any form especially death threats even IF they were not serious which you can’t tell if they are or not.

    Should I report the situation even though it’s old?
    And sorry if it’s a little confusing, I did not want to use names.
    If defending people who are receiving death threats and being severely bullied for no reason isn’t “grown up” then I do not want to be grown up.
    Trolling? You clearly do not know the definition of trolling.

    Either way, I’m in no violation whatsoever of the community guidelines.
    You, however, are. Good luck with this.

    As an expat in China, I’m used to living without Youtube, Facebook and Twitter (all are blocked here).
    But I hate the thought of losing Google – my homepage and a site I use almost daily.
    Plus, Google offers a service here in China that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the World: google.cn/MUSIC (think i -Tunes… only free!)

    However, I would GLADLY sacrifice access to Google if it means making a stand against this CONTEMPTUOUS regime!

    The Chinese Communist Party FEARS Google (despite being heavily censored) because it provides too much access to information and freedom of thought.

    Google has tolerated Chinese censorship until now, but the last straw came when China hackers recently “cyber-attacked” the e-mail acounts of human rights activists.
    Now, Google has declared it will no longer practice self-censorship in China and is prepared to lose access to the World’s largest internet market!!!

    So……. when will Yahoo! take a similar stand against this bully?!
    Back in 2005, Yahoo! helped the Chinese government send dissident, Shi Tao, to prison:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shi_Tao (<<Btw. this link is blocked here in China.)

    Much as I'd hate to lose access to Yahoo! Answers, I would prefer to see Yahoo! redeem itself.
    What do you think?

    I have cried my self to sleep all summer while I have been listening to my iPod because I have been getting harassed on Facebook about a fight that I was in before I finished school. The bullying started with people creating Facebook accounts known as buddy’s and you have to write on their wall for them to write on yours. When I first seen them I thought it would be fun to see what they thought they knew and the stuff they said was awful it was “buddy knows you got yer head kicked in like ******* battered buddy knows your heads up your own hole and that your rather cocky buddy dislikes you :D” I was really annoyed about this but the thing that annoyed me more was that people liked it and people that I knew and some I have only heard of. There was another buddy that wrote to me, the girl got praised for battering me on her Facebook wall and a boy i know brought it up to her the other day under one of her wall posts and and she replied with so she deserved it :). My teacher who is also my year head told me to come to him if anything was said to me about it but that was at that time, if I came to him about this do u think he would care, or do you think he would think to himself how sad it’s only on facebook. I can’t do anything. Will I go to him or do you think I am over reacting and I would come across as a snitch. Thanks I don’t want any bad comments I have had enough of them already.
    ^^ I posted this question a few days ago but it was my birthday today and I went into the town with my friends today and I seen the girl who battered me and everywhere I went her and her friends would stare at me, it was the sorta stare like wat are you doing here kinda thing. It annoyed me but I didn’t want to let it get to me since it was my birthday but she walked past me coming out of a shop and my heart almost stopped I was that scared my friend started to hug me because she knew I was really upset about it. If you can give me any advice on what to do with her and also if I should go to my year head about the above thanks :)x

    I’m looking through Facebook, trying to find old childhood friends, and I found a girl that was a sister of one of my good friends as a kid, and I friend request her. Now, upon this, a few hours later I get a threat from her boyfriend. Also, they currently had a fight about something that I know nothing of. I don’t tolerate this kind of cyber bullying, so I might even go to the cops about this. Does anybody have some advice, before I do so? http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/282160_1970191860075_1401330676_32017775_3144486_n.jpg

    On facebook, how do you hide your friends list so that your other friends cannot see it?

    I know if you join a Facebook Group you are a Member.
    If you join a Page you are a Fan.
    What is the difference between a Group and a Page ?

    Facebook: How do you set friends to be able to see only mutual friends?
    Those instructions do not work. Under Privacy settings, I have 3 options: Public, Friends and Custom.

  12. Two friends facebook profiles have been not showing up on facebook recently.I have noticed on past messages from these friends that their profile picture has also changed to a shadow.They are missing from all facebook searches and on mutual friends lists.Are their profiles “deactivated”? When a profile is deactivated does it mean its gone from facebook for good? Thanks in advance!

    I want to send my Facebook statuses to twitter but not the other way around. That is, I do not want my tweets going to my Facebook account but I want my Facebook statuses going to my twitter. Any help? Thanks.

    Many users have the facebook logo in their avatars. Is that avatar coming from facebook and is Yahoo allowing people to display the copyrighted facebook logo?

    Facebook is nice to keep in contact with others, but I notice that some people spend many hours updating their statuses and checking in on the lives of others and trying to keep up with the Jones’s so to speak via facebook. In your opinion would you say that facebook takes your focus off of God? Should good christians have facebook accounts? And what purpose does facebook serve to the serious christian.
