Digital Disrespect: What is it?39% of young people have had rumors spread via text Spreading negative or embarrassing dirt (true, untrue, or unknown, via text, pic or video) about someone behind their back or to their face.
Draw Your Line
- Unhide. If you wouldn't say it to a person's face, don't say it online or text it.
- Disengage. If someone's talking about you, don't respond—everything you say just fuels the fire. In this case, silence is golden.
- Secure your stuff. Find the privacy settings for all the networks you're part of, and use them. They're there for a reason.
- Save everything. If you're being harassed online, save the messages, posts, comments, etc. so that you can back up requests for blocking or even a protective order (should it come to that).
- Know your legal rights
- Use your voice. A site administrator, parent, teacher, or other authority figure you trust can help you deal with nasty stuff happening online — but you have to let them know it's happening.
