Richard lynch travels to New York to speak with the founders of the organisation endtocyberbullying.org.
The End to Cyber Bullying (ETCB) Organization is a state certified non-profit organization founded by Samuel Lam and David Zhao on May 1st, 2011 in hopes of creating a social network devoid of cyber bullying. By raising awareness and informing the members of our community and others around the globe, ETCB hopes to help teens, parents, educators, and others identify, prevent, and ultimately stop cyber bullying. Ultimately, we hope to BE THE CHANGE and spread positivity online instead of negativity.
Headquartered in Long Island, New York, ETCB is where bystanders, previous victims and ordinary people, interested in helping, mobilize to help cyber bullying victims as well as to spread the knowledge and inspiration they provide -- whether across the street, across the country, or across the world.
Bullying is no longer about the strong picking on the weak. Bullying has been replaced by a 24 hour per day, seven days a week online monster. This monster has a name -- cyberbullying. With the increasing expansion of Instant Messaging, emails, chat rooms, blogging, and websites, the issue of cyberbullying is growing at a grotesque rate. Children, teenagers, and even adults that interact via social networking, all have fallen prey to cyberbullying — whether they've witnessed cyberbullying or experienced it first hand, they all bear testimony to the damage done by cyberbullies. Cyberbullying is certainly real, and can be infinitely more painful.
