Website communications are devoid of Human touch.
People use them to such an extent that it is ridiculous.
This he has posted as a Status Message!
What people forget is that the Likes and comments are frivolous and do not mean any thing.
These are done by rote and the comments are amateurish and insensitive.
The reason is that one does not know the other and hence there is no feeling, despite protestations to the contrary.
Bet rule is to read all comments and refrain from uploading any personal information.
And do not bother about comments.
A notorious website blamed for the deaths of four children must be closed down, their families said last night.
‘Sites like these are making millions out of people’s misery and it is wrong,’ he said.
‘I don’t want other parents to go through what I am going through.’
Now read the story how a site has triggered the suicides of Children because of Cyber bullying.
He was backed by the parents of 15-year-old Josh Unsworth, who was found hanged in April after being tormented by trolls on Ask.fm.
The family said the ‘24/7 presence of the internet in children’s lives’ made it much harder to protect them from bad influences.
Two Irish youngsters have also died following relentless abuse on Latvian-based Ask.fm. The calls for action came as:
- A whistleblower in Latvia’s capital Riga claimed bosses at Ask.fm are reluctant to tackle cyber-bullying for fear of losing customers and up to £5million a year in advertising;
- Sick trolls are mocking Hannah’s death on a Facebook page set up in her memory;
- Childline revealed complaints about cyber-bullying have doubled in a year.
Hannah, 14, was found hanged by her sister, Joanne, 16, after suffering at least four months of taunts and abuse on Ask.fm.
She had been told to ‘go cut yourself and die’ and ‘drink bleach’ by users of the question and answer style website that she had turned to for help with her eczema.
The social media site allows trolls to operate anonymously and offers no privacy controls.
‘I appeal to David Cameron as a Prime Minister and a father to look at this to make sure these sites are properly regulated so bullying of vulnerable people like my daughter cannot take place.
‘I want this to be sorted out as soon as possible so no other vulnerable children die. We never expected this. We never saw any signs of Hannah doing this.’
