Witham: Schoolchildren vulnerable to anonymous online bullies
4:00pm Thursday 14th February 2013 in News
Children are vulnerable to anonymous abuse through a social networking site, a school principal has warned.
Maltings Academy, in Spinks Lane, Witham, has reported a number of recent incidents involving its pupils.
Social networking site Ask.fm came under fire last year when schoolchildren in Ireland allegedly committed suicide as a result of online bullying.
While sites such as Facebook and Twitter require users to provide their real names, Ask.fm allows registered users to post messages to other members anonymously.
Full story in the Witham and Braintree Times.
