Be prepared, take action

With the rising prevalence and dangers of cyberbullying, Stand for the Silent developed the Social Bullets Program as a means to educate, intervene and prevent. The Social Bullets website, the Social Bullets video, and the Cyberbullying Survival Guide are resources for use by parents, youth, other adults who are in the roles of safeguarding youth, and youths themselves. We invite you to view the video and read the material with the goal of leaving you feeling more understood and prepared to address the cyberbullying experiences facing you and your youth.

In 24 hours, 300 teenagers attempted suicide

The Social Bullets video you are about to see is based on data gathered to replicate a twenty-four-hour period on social media, as experienced by youth living in the United States. The video features originally written messages, actual numbers, types of cyberbullying with descriptions, and comments by actual cyberbullying survivors. After the video is viewed by adults and youth, our hope is that it can be used in conjunction with additional resources found on this website to promote a series of discussions that culminate in beneficial action.

Portraits of the Cyberbullied

Culture Shaming, Body Shaming, Slut-Shaming, and Grade Shaming are the four most common forms of cyberbullying. Depicted in graphic representations of the cruel injuries inflicted on youth who are cyberbullied, the posters show the harmful effects that cyberbullying imposes on the body, mind, and spirit of the cyberbullied.

Check out the interactive gallery below. A brief summary describing the specific type of cyberbullying accompanies each poster. By raising awareness of the forms cyberbullying takes and its harsh consequences, the objective is for parents and youth to recognize that cyberbullying is an act of violence, not the fault of the survivor, and no one deserves to endure the abuse cyberbullying unleashes.
