When navigating the online and digital world, it is so important to follow necessary protocols and practices if you are going to choose to use text as your communication medium. Avoiding bad practices like sending SPAM messages and non following compliance rules are overall things that you should be avoiding at all costs.
Something that the world needs to pay attention to is the fact that “95% of teens in the U.S. are online, and the vast majority access the internet on their mobile device, making it the most common medium for cyber bullying.” This is a staggering statistic, revealing how immersed our generation is in the cyber world. And it is terrifying to think that activity within the cyber world often goes unnoticed, which includes negative behaviors such as cyber bullying.
What is cyber bullying? Cyber bullying is the act of sending, posting, or sharing negative or harmful content on the internet, especially if it is to another person. Cyber bullying has become even more terrifying to the point that there are reported numbers of “young people (10-16 years) who accessed or shared sexual content or images of cyberbullying or violence had up to a 50% higher risk for thoughts of suicide. Furthermore, there “has been a 70% increase in the amount of bullying/hate speech among teens and children in the month since the Covid lockdown began.” Cyberbullying is a real issue that needs to be addressed, and luckily, SMS texting is an excellent tool to help fight against it.
With national suicide prevention hotlines moving toward contact less methods, we don’t see why these hotlines should not use SMS texting. In fact, a text can be even easier and more accessible than a call, especially because it requires even less effort from the person who can be experiencing bullying or even darker thoughts. Simply have them text a keyword such as the word “help,” to a dedicated short code, and they can have someone immediately in contact with them who can respond to them in real time. While many people may not think to use SMS texting as a means to save lives, you can be rest assured that texting is one of the most effective and efficient communication methods, being able to send mass messages in a fraction of the time.
