Have you ever been bullied in social media? Well, if yes, don’t worry, you are not alone. I used to be in that same situation.

     It happened about a year ago, thinking that Philippines is a free country, I posted something in my Facebook account. Actually, that’s a sort of an opinion about our government. Suddenly, someone in authority commented on that status and humiliate me in front of the netizens. That’s the worst nightmare of my life.

     According to Margaret Rouse(http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/cyberbullying),

“Cyberbullying is the use of cell phones, instant messaging, e-mail, chat rooms or social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to harass, threaten or intimidate someone.” Thus, it’s a form of bullying that uses technology.

     Republic act No. 10627 is an anti-bullying act is an act for elementary and secondary students while the cyber crime law do not cover cyber bullying.

      Bullies are everywhere. If only there is a concrete law that will protect us from them. Social media is fun but somehow… dangerous.
