Finland Cyber Bullying

            The main purpose of this article is to prove to us that just because cyber bullying is not physically visible, it still has a very harmful effect on anyone who is a victim of this problem. Self-administered questionnaires were sent to teens in Finland ages 12-18 years old. The researchers found that this issue differs by sex; females are more likely to have been a bully, victim, or both the bull and victim than males are. The conclusion was found that teens and adolescents are usually exposed to cyber bullying at some point in their secondary school years but it is rare to be considered a large issue. The researchers decided in their next experiment the consequences of someone who commits cyber bullying should be considered.

            The writers who published this article do not show sensitivity to their point of view on this matter. Many of us today know that cyber bullying is an extreme issue in globally and is continuing to get worse. However, the author’s research and results show that the percentages (in Finland) are low and is does not seem to be disruptive in that country. They do not respond to objections framed from other points of view, this article is very straightforward and unbiased. The conclusion is based on the results of their research and not their own opinions on the issue.

I do agree with you about cyber bullying and it is extremely sad. A few years ago, a young woman from British Colombia, Amanda Todd committed suicide because she was constantly getting bullied. It all started when she made a mistake where she flashed her breasts to strangers on Internet. The strangers added all her friends and posted the pictures online. She was constantly teased and bullied because of the photos posted online and the stranger kept going which drives her to die. I believe that cyber intimidation is an extremely serious case and it is extremely dangerous for young immature teens. People should start to look on this case more seriously because of one mistake Amanda made , it made her to suicide.
