Bullying Statistics 2014: an Extensive Guide Released by NoBullying Today

London, UK (PRWEB) February 11, 2014

There is no doubt that bullying is a problem in U.S. schools, but just how much of a problem is it? NoBullying.com releases the latest bullying statistics 2014 guide today.

According to the guide, recent news stories are filled with tales of cyberbullying – where the target is harassed through social media or other technology – that have unfortunately resulted in victims’ suicides. The majority of bullying still takes place at school; 1 in 3 U.S. students say they have been bullied at school.

In a UCLA psychology study, published in January 2013, Psychologists studied 1,895 students at 11 Los Angeles middle schools, where students were asked to name the students who were considered the “coolest.” According to Jaana Juvonen, the lead author of the study, “The ones who are ‘cool’ bully more, and the ones who bully more are seen as ‘cool.’”

20 percent of U.S. students in grades 9-12 reportedly have experienced bullying, while 28 percent of students in grades 6-12 report the same. Experts agree that most incidences of bullying occur during middle school.

Most experts agree that bullying peaks in middle school, while children are making the transition from children to young adults. Although bullying certainly continues into high school – and even into adulthood, unfortunately – it does seem to subside with maturity.

Even so, approximately 160,000 teens reportedly skip school every day because of bullying, and 1 in 10 teens drops out of school due to repeated bullying. 83 percent of girls, and 79 percent of boys report being bullied either in school or online.

Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said, “Bullying Statistics 2014 aim to keep our readers updated with what is going on in the sad world of bullying and cyberbullying. Numbers, sadly, cannot lie.”

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and off line. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.

NoBullying.com features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing Bullying worldwide as well as inspirational Bullying Poems and Bullying Quotes.

The website makes a habit of updating its bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics regularly because it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is.

Is Omegle Safe? NoBullying Answers in an Article Released Today

London, UK (PRWEB) February 23, 2014

Parents are often quick to remind their children to not start chatting with strangers they meet while out in public or walking down the street, but what about the Internet? A popular website known as Omegle offers a platform for users for chatting with strangers from all over the world on a variety of topics. NoBullying answers, in an article released today, a simple question: Is Omegle Safe?

Omegle is a free website that allows anyone who visits it to chat with strangers. A simple click of the mouse takes users to a virtual chat room where they are paired up with another random user waiting to chat.

A user has the opportunity to ‘walk away’ from the chat at any moment with a simple click of the mouse. Once an individual walks away, they can close the website out completely and stop chatting or be paired up with another stranger.

Some of the safety concerns rising with Omegle include the presence of sex predators on the website posing as younger children, the availability of nude encounters in the video chat feature and the encouragement to take the chat or conversation off of the site. Many users will provide website links, KIK IDs, Skype user names, and phone numbers with the hopes that the individual will take the chat ‘offsite’

Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said “Chatting with strangers is a dangerous trend that can result in potentially deadly situations. Imagine a complete stranger chatting with your child or teen and then maybe encourages them to meet up or gets them to send more personal private information like the family address and so on.”

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and offline. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.

He also added that anyone suffering from bullying in any form or way can always reach out to the team of NoBullying and they will be given advice on how to stand up to bullying or protect themselves online.

Working to Halt Online Abuse [WHO@] Released Its 2013 Cyberstalking Statistics

(PRWEB) February 28, 2014

Working to Halt Online Abuse (WHO@; haltabuse.org) released its 2013 cyberstalking statistics as well as cumulative statistics for the years 2000–2013.

The statistics are gathered from cases victims filed with WHO@ during 2013. The number reflects only those victims who filled out the demographic information, so the number shown is lower than the actual number of victims who came to WHO@ for help.

2013 statistics are based on 256 cases, of which 60% of victims were female and 40% were male, a huge difference from 2012 when 80% of the victims were female and 20% were male.

“With the perceived anonymity online, we are seeing more and more men coming to us for help,” notes WHO@ President Jayne A. Hitchcock. “We also have seen a decrease in male harassers—only 40% in 2013 over 49% in 2012—and an increase in harassers whose gender was unknown, which in 2012 was 20%, but last year increased to 30%.”

Other noted statistics:

Over half had a previous relationship with their harasser. Of those:

        47% were exes

        15% were online acquaintances

        15% were work-related

        14% were family members

        8% were friends/former friends

        1% were neighbors

As in previous years, email was the primary way that the harassment began (30%), closely followed by Facebook, also at 30%; web sites came in at 14% and texting at 8%.

Over three quarters of the cases escalated online, with 25% of the victims getting threats of physical violence. When the cases did escalate, Facebook was number one at 29%, followed by telephone/cell phone calls at 25%, text messages at 24%, Twitter and Google+ at 17% each, email at 16%, and dating and web sites at 15% each.

“We found that most victims called their local police, FBI, or lawyer (51%) when they should have reported the harassment/stalking to the Internet Service Providers, web site hosts, or cell phone app owners instead,” claims Hitchcock. “We ended up resolving almost 70% of the cases from 2013 by contacting the online services involved, with only 28% going to law enforcement or a lawyer.”

The statistics are available on the WHO@ web site at http://www.haltabuse.org/resources/stats/index.shtml.

WHO@ is the oldest online safety organization, formed in February of 1997 by Hitchcock, who was a cyberstalking victim at that time. The organization added the Kids/Teen Division (haltabusektd.org) in 2005, and Hitchcock speaks to students from kindergarten (yes, that young) to college/university levels.

“The Internet and smartphones are not going away,” Hitchcock claims. “Students, educators, and parents need to know how to keep themselves safer online from bullies, predators, stalkers, trolls, and harassers.”

Hitchcock also trains law enforcement and speaks at conferences and libraries throughout the USA and her newest book, True Crime Online: Shocking Stories of Stalking, Scamming, Murder, and Mayhem (truecrime-online.com) has stories of online situations gone horribly wrong. For more information, please contact WHO@ President Jayne A. Hitchcock at whoa(at)haltabuse(dot)org.
