Since the advent of the Internet, bulling is not only restricted to schools, but it has become a worldwide phenomenon where harassment often continues on the Internet. Incidentally, the bulling phenomenon, which was largely restricted to teenagers is also affecting adults and high-profile individuals. Mostly, the individual is targeted on the Internet by the attacker who tries to defame by posting wrong information on the Internet. According to statistics compiled by onlinereputationreviews.com, victims of cyber bulling are from all races, In extreme cases, constant bullying can result in low-self esteem and even suicide.
Traditionally, cyber bullying was restricted to posting mean and hurtful comments, but recently it has taken a new dimension where attackers publish entire columns and articles about the victim. Sometimes, these articles make it to the mainstream popular media, where millions of readers can read ‘fake comments’ and misinformation. Perhaps, one of the primary reasons for attackers to use the online medium is to take advantage of the misinformation that most of the Internet users do not care to verify. In the end, the misinformation and myths become part of the Internet ecosystem, which allows such posts to continue spreading.
Luckily, several online reputation firms are helping victims take control of their destiny by providing effective solutions that can tackle cyber bullying and spread of fake content. The easiest method used by these companies is to seek professional help to remove wrong information. In many cases, it is not easy to delete comments on the public platforms, therefore online reputation management firms also use their lawyers to force the attacker to remove such information. Similarly, they also help the victim build reputation by posting fresh comments and articles that push wrong information down in the search result until the information is not visible in the first pages of the Internet. Likewise, there are several other tactics used by online reputation managers, which ensures that bullies and cyber criminals do not get the upper-hand. If you are a victim or know someone who needs help, it is time to ask a professional online reputation management agency to come to the rescue.
