Teens are dealing with cyberbullying on Instagram, where they can be indirectly and anonymously targeted. Instagram’s policies can block bullying through posts on personal accounts, but aggressors are usually more creative. Instead, they’re creating dedicated “hate pages,” sending gossip to school-wide confessions pages, or using direct messages, comments, group chats, and even curated diss track playlists. That helps explain why 72% of teens told Ypulse they think social media platforms should do more to prevent cyberbullying. (The Atlantic)
