Most of us have seen unpleasant, petty or threatening publications online. This video shows an example of what to do when a bad personal comment is posted on a social media page for a social event related to work.
The signs of abuse and violence can appear in real life or online. It is very common to see comments on social networks that are bad or that involve persecution, intimidation or harassment. It is also common to see comments that show sexism, racism, homophobia, disability and other forms of discrimination.
When an intimate or family relationship ends, family violence sometimes continues. The months after the end of a violent relationship can be the most dangerous time for a person's abuse.
Establishing a standard in your workplace or community where you do not tolerate harassment or bullying online is important. While watching the video, consider what you could do safely if you witness possible online harassment at work or online.
