Dealing with internet trolls/bullies

Recommended Posts

This is something I have had big issues with over the last 18 months on facebook so please be very careful. Anything like this should always be reported to the host whether it is Facebook, Twitter etc. 

If it happens in a group then it should be reported to a member of the admin team as they have a bit more power to deal with things. 

Be aware of fake profiles. These often have no profile pic and no friends. 

Am looking for links to share with you about this

Fake profiles, more often than not, do have a profile picture. But it will have been added within the last fortnight so it's pretty obvious when you look at the profile. 

Another good one is the hacker. Will use someone's profile to spam people - just like when they hack someone's email account. 

Sorry to hear you've been affected by it 🙁

Thanks. My trolls had pictures of animals. One of the trolls had at least 12 fake accounts !

Over 18m???  What on earth is the point.  I'd have a big Blocked List if that was me.  Just goes to show you never can tell!

Every time I block her she sets up a new profile and sends me messages ! That's the problem with having my profile set to public but I need to have it that way because of the community work I do

Report her to facejerk for harassment. That works. 

I wish it did Brian... even been reported to the police by someone else she was trolling ... nothing done
