Bullying and Harassment in a new age of Social Media
As we adjust to a new age of social media we see the first ever generation growing up with this in their everyday lives. This panel explores the influence social media has had on bullying and harassment directly from youth. Has bullying and harassment escalated in accessibility and intensity due to the option of anonymity? What are the ways to prevent, and help with, harassment situations that we should be exploring? Is bullying becoming more vicious due to the large demographic that is able to access information or comments quickly? This panel will explore these topic among others.
