Peoples Stories

I myself have never had a experience when some threatened me online but I know someone that has had a scary situation. So one of my family members was so to be married and she got a Facebook. All of her siblings had one and even her husband did as well. So anyways their was a person on Facebook pretending to be her brother. So that guy on Facebook pretending to be her brother was threatening her and saying rude and hurt full things. So she got scared and she deleted her Facebook. Afterward she asked her brother why he was saying all those mean things and he was very confused.

So just imagine if this happened to you than what would you do? Would you ask for help or smack talk them and make matters even worse?

In situations like this you should always tell someone and ask for help. You should tell your parents or if you don't have someone to talk to than maybe you should go to the police.
