Some people share videos of bullying to let others know what’s happened or to catch the people doing the bullying.
But it’s important you don’t post, share, comment or like videos of bullying because: If you see a video that shows someone you know hurting someone or being bullied themselves, tell an adult you trust, like a parent or teacher.
People may also steal or destroy your belongings or creations in games.
Sometimes people involved in bullying might post someone else's photos or personal information without that person's permission.
