BBC Own It – Bullying and Trolling

The Own It site and app are designed to help you make the smart choices online, feel more confident, and know where to go for advice if you need it.

Abbie explains what she likes about the website: “It has a keyboard section where if you type something mean or personal information, you are told to stop. It helps you think about being nice to others and what kind of things might hurt others. I loved it because you get your own diary to journal in. I’d recommend this to everyone. Everyone will try to post a mean comment sometimes and that keyboard helps a lot. It’s helpful, pretty, easy to download.”

Jessica, age 11 says “If you’re typing something good, it will tell you and if you’re typing something bad it will tell you not to send it and to think about what about your typing. You can keep a diary or a chart of your emotions.”
