Cyber bullying should be stopped

Dear Sir

The widespread use of technology in our daily lives has surely blessed us in different ways. But there are many cons as well. Cyberbullying is one of the common phenomena we are encounter in virtual life. However it has become a major concern in recent times especially among teenagers. Some unethical people steal personal information of others like photos and videos and make them available online for the public to shame the victims. As soon as the materials go viral, the victims are stigmatised. And people never shows any empathy to victims.
Online harassment is absolutely unacceptable. It is a shame that in a civilised society, such behaviour still exists. Even though we now have strict cyber laws, bullying online is often disregarded. The authorities need to monitor such acts and impose severe punishments for the netizens who are involved with cyberbullying or shaming innocent people online. Moreover, as users, we too should be more cautious about our actions regarding what we share online and with whom. If we fail to address this issue immediately, it will only get worse with time.
