Want to help prevent online bullying? Comment on Facebook

This thoughtful and compassionate piece by TED’s social media editor, Nadia Goodman, deserves a read. I remember at the time of the original scandal thinking that Monica Lewinsky’s life would never be the same again. And, it turns out, it wasn’t. As someone who was bullied for years in school myself, I particularly appreciate Goodman’s message here of proactively showing what is, and is not, acceptable on message boards so that “the tone does change. Together, we have the power to protect the most vulnerable among us.”
