Cases of cyber Violence

  • Case1
  • Case2
  • Case3

Six months ago, one of the male seniors (second and third grade in high school) sent a sexual message “I want to XXX you” to victim’s account. Later the victim found out the message, and he admitted to his mistake, too. However, still irritated, she spoke some bad words of the seniors. Knowing that, they captured A’s profile picture and uploaded it with comments like “find this Fxxx”, “Let’s go XXX this Fxxx” in their Facebook account. They continuingly texted and called her, “Come out and apologize to us face to face. If you don’t show up, I’ll break your bones.” In this situation, she asked for counseling and help to the BTF.

- Excerpts from 1588-9128 counseling call by the Blue Tree Foundation.

A(sophomore of high school, female) met B(sophomore of high school, male) through the ‘AXX’ app that she started for fun. As they got close by talking to each other, B asked A about the size of her body part. Although she expressed displeasure, B kept making sexual comments. Because it was an anonymous SNS, A couldn’t know B’s specific personal information. A asked for counseling and help to report school violence and respond strongly against B.

- Excerpts from 1588-9128 counseling call by the Blue Tree Foundation.

A, a middle school student, received a message with a link from a junior she knew. When she accessed the link, surprisingly, she found someone’s account filled with pictures of A. Someone took the pictures that A posted on SNS and uploaded them as if it were her. A got mad and sent a message to the user of the account about the photo theft. Then the account user just set the account locked and gave no answer. A searched for some ways to report and punish him, but there was no way other than just reporting the account to the customer center. So she asked for counseling and help.

Do you know exactly what cyberbullying is?

As society is becoming digitized rapidly,
it is not easy to set the clear concept and
appropriate measures of cyberbullying,
so recent policies and systems are being operated separately.

It is needed to set up national·social legislation and policy system to deal with various kinds of online violence as well as rapidly developing relational violence such as exclusion, bullying, and backbiting.
