Facebook and Bullies

Here’s something to make you anxious…

A good article from the New York Times about bullies on facebook. It takes a while to get to the good part where parents talk about how to address the parents of the bully.

If you found out your child was being bullied on facebook, would you approach the other parents? The School? The other kid?

Another good story in the article is about a 9th grader who was the victim of a “false profile,” that is someone made a fake page representing him. A good anecdote that we need to be monitoring facebook even if our kids aren’t on it.
