Like little stars.
Earlier this week, my ArCompany colleague Hessie Jones wrote a damning blog post on the state of social networks and their approaches to cyberbullying.
It’s a powerful read and looks at both sides of the coin – is it merely down to platforms to tackle, or users of the platforms as well, by speaking up when they see something wrong happening?
As someone who’s suffered bullying as a child, it struck home with me, especially now since online personas make it easy to target victim(s) behind a veil of anonymity.
Which is why I’ve started a Clipsi board around the topic of cyberbullying and where social networks fit in. I’ve covered the value of Clipsi as a news resource on this blog previously, so it made perfect sense to use this new platform.
Some statistics around the topic of cyberbullying:
Of course, cyberbullying isn’t restricted to teens, with adults coming under unwanted and threatening scrutiny. Clearly there is a major problem with today’s society and easier accessibility to people.
While we can’t stop it overnight, we can continue the process to eradicate it – or, at the very least, make it something that won’t be ignored. This Clipsi board is my way of joining the battle.
If you have any resources you’d like to share, please leave them in the comments below and I’ll add to the board. Let’s get started.
Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
