BULLYING on SOCIAL MEDIA: Has it happened to you?

Recently, I've heard some horror stories from authors who were victims of "mental bullying" on social media sites.

Has this ever happened to you?  If so, how did you handle it?  Also, what do you think that this unfortunate turn of events means for authors?

If you don't mind sharing your experience or opinion, please leave your comments below.  You never might help someone else.


  1. While I have NOT been bulled on social media, I've had a lifetime of bullying. I was always picked on because of my "Disability" and I've seen it happen to friends.

    I HATE bullying. Of any kind. Emotional, physical, online, in person. It HAS to stop!

    I've got a young son and I wonder what kind of world I brought him into. It's seriously gone mad and some days it just makes me sick.

    1. Thanks for sharing, Nikki. It's very painful to be bullied, regardless of the tactics. Take heart in the fact that most people are basically good and do not wish others harm. However, none of us can afford to be bystanders anymore. Getting involved is the only way to make the world a better place for our children.
