Jamie Isburg and Zach Needham are students at Washington High School. Both have used social media to communicate with friends and both know cyber bullying exists.
I don't see it very directly in my particular friend groups, but I do see the effects of it like the ripples of it going across, there's always some drama that's related to what was said on twitter or something," Needham said.
Isburg sees cyber bullying as a growing problem, mostly because more and more younger kids are getting social media accounts and aren't mature enough to use it the way it was intended to be used.
What role should parents play in all of this?
I think they should play a bigger role, not in taking the privileges away, but in educating their kids more and maybe discussing things more with them, so they understand the meaning of Facebook and Twitter and they know how to use it better," Isburg said.
I think we're in that transitional generation that parents don't know enough about what's going on, so the kids are figuring it out themselves with nobody with experience to tell them what they are doing right or wrong," Needham said.
Their advice for other students, especially anyone who feels like they are being bullied is to only accept people who truly are your friends or maybe like in Needham's case, stop using it.
I have completely stepped away from all social media, I still have friends and I don't have any drama with it," Needham said.
