Cyberbullying and victimization online, particularly for teenagers, has become an increasingly problematic issue with alarming consequences. About 33% of teenagers report being the victims of cyberbullying, and children who are bullied on the internet are 11 times more likely to consider suicide when compared to peers bullied in person. In fact, suicides among children between the ages of 10 and 14 years old have increased 50% in the last 30 years and over 1 million children report experiencing cyberbullying on Facebook in the past year. 
Watch Audrie and Daisy, a documentary available on Netflix. This documentary tells the story of three sexual assault cases with teenage victims, including Audrie Pott (15 years old) and Daisy Coleman (14 years old). When video surfaces of the sexual assaults online, the teenagers and their families are harassed, bullied, and abused online. Audrie committed suicide in 2012 at the age of 15, just 9 days after her assault. Daisy suffered from the lasting effects of trauma, including depression, and in August 2020, committed suicide at the age of 23 years old.
Use what you have learned from the documentary and in class about victimization on the internet, including cyberbullying, to prepare a 2-3 page (double-spaced) reaction paper to the documentary, answering the following questions:
* Why do you think a culture of online bullying has become so common in today’s world?
* What are the consequences of this type of culture?
* How might we empower children and teenagers to act when they see potentially harmful behavior online?
* What, if anything, should be done to help young people safely navigate social media and reduce the culture of social media shaming?
* Do you think that tech companies, like Facebook and Twitter, should be held responsible for harmful activity, like cyberbullying, that happens on their platforms?
* Might holding them accountable be a “slippery slope” towards the suppression of freedom of speech and expression OR do you think there are certain kinds of activity that need to be censored to protect others?
