Cyber bullying continues to be one of the biggest challenges facing social media users.  Research from anti-bullying charity, Ditch the Label suggests that social media is making youngsters more anxious, with a lot of them depending on likes on their posts to build their self confidence and the number of followers linked to their self worth. Not only is social media redefining the climate of bullying, it is having clear impacts upon the identity, behavior and personality of its users. 

Instagram has been highlighted as having become the vehicle most used for harmful comments with less figures for Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat. This has led to Instagram developing a machine learning technology to block offensive comments, also giving people the option of disabling comments altogether or making their own list of banned words or emojis.

This panel will explore how social media and online reputation can impact individuals now and into the future as well as what we can do as a community to rise above cyber bullying.
