The media outlets have been paying a lot of attention to cyberbullying these days – and that is a good thing. It gets better though. Inspired by Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns’ recent testimony, many ordinary people are taking to the social web to raise awareness of cyberbullying against gay, lesbian, and transgendered youth. Some of the most notable videos to date include President Obama, the folks at Google, Tim Gunn, Perez Hilton, Adam Lambert, and Eve.
When many use the social web to cyberbully others, it’s great to see people coming together online to create something positive. We here at SocialShield hope the meme continues. To learn more, check out It Gets Better Project.
