[eMarketer] Ban social media bullies for good, half of US adults say
As companies continue to introduce new ways to handle bullies, over half of US adults have expressed their opinions on the subject insisting that bullies should be dealt with once and for all. They say that social media platforms should champion this campaign as quoted in eMarketer.
In a survey conducted by Pew Research Centre, 51 per cent of those polled said that banning cyberbullies for good was the most effective way of dealing with them with another 48 per cent opining that revealing the identities of cyber bullies would work in stopping bad behavior online.
With rising cases of online harassment that has been attributed to depression and sometimes even death, social media users believe that these online avenues will work to ensure that their feeds do not resemble the notorious “Mean Girls” bully Regina George's Burn Book.
