Cyber chat no picture uploading
That said, I thought I would take some time here to give the adults who have been victimized out there some general advice.
I thought I’d tackle the most common issue with photographs – whether you have a reasonable expectation of privacy.We get a lot of emails, phone calls, and comments on this blog from adults who are being bullied though technology. We know that cyberbullying negatively affects adults too.They stress to us that cyberbullying is not just an adolescent problem. It’s just that we spend the majority of our efforts studying how this problem impacts school-aged youth due to their tenuous developmental stage.For example, I just got an adorable basset hound named Rosie. I have no expectation of privacy regarding where we walk, what I’m wearing when I walk her, or how I react when she pulls on the leash. Anyone can take a picture of us and post it online, preferably with a caption that says, “Sassy lady and her awesome dog,” and there’s nothing I can do about it (as long as they’re not misrepresenting me or commercializing my image without my consent).If you’re in a public place and someone snaps a picture of you while you’re falling down drunk, getting arrested, picking your nose, scowling at a crying baby, or not wearing pants, there’s probably nothing you can do if that picture shows up online somewhere.
Keep your voice down low and leave the room if you can.
