Things you can try to help a friend who is being bullied or harassed online:

  1. Listen to them - it can be really helpful for them to have someone to talk things through with.
  2. Support your friend - offering to go with them to report the bullying and help them think about what they want to say.
  3. Write supportive comments - this may help them feel like they aren't so alone when other people are posting negative messages.
  4. Do things together - this may help to take their mind off things for a short while. You could watch a DVD, play sports or go to the cinema.
