Stephen heads to launch of Safer Internet Day to find out what people can do to battle online bullying.

Be Aware: Is it bullying or banter? Without body language and facial expressions, it’s often hard to know the difference. Think before you type.
Be Informed: Remember the ‘bystander effect’. Before you like and share, think how a comment or post will affect the people involved.
Just Report: To make a difference report the problem – online, at home or in school.
Just Ask: Asking for help is easier than it seems. Go to for links to groups like Aware, Bodywhys, Childline, SpunOut,, BeLong and the Samaritans.
Connect With Respect. Beat Cyberbullying.
