Radio 1 Cyberbullying and Anti Negativity on the Internet

From the 7th of February 2015, Radio 1 has been running a series of shows to talk about the issue of negativity and bullying on the internet. You can listen again or watch podcasts and interviews with bloggers or other users who have experiences to share.

It’s worth having a look at the articles which discuss how to ensure your on-line safety. The message is that you are in control of your interactions, and there are easy and basic strategies to do this.

There are also flip points such as the does and don’ts of online interaction and discussions of things like ensuring you create a positive footprint. You might also consider if you would you be happy for everyone to see the things you post – and that can include your family and employers. Oversharing can be something to laugh at, but worth a thought before you press to post!

There are also forums for support and details of who to talk to if you have a problem.

So have a look and make sure you know how to keep safe and happy.
