Bullying on Social Networks

It can be really hard if you’re being bullied online but Childline is here to help. This webpage contains information on blocking and reporting bullies, getting help with bullying videos and useful information if you’re being bullied online.

This webpage contains information on how to report sexting or bullying on snapchat, facebook, instagram, twitter, whatsapp, video chat sites and tumblr. It also contains a variety of videos about bullying which can give you help and advice on how to recover after bullying.
