    Magandang araw, itanong ko lang po kung may Laban Ba ​​Ang Kaso na cyber bullying Ang Pag screenshoot ng isang post Ng kaibigan ko sa facebook at sinasabi salitang marumi, at itoy pino post ko sa aking facebook account, ngunit walang sinasabing anumang salita pananakot laban sa kanya? ipinakita ko lamang at patunayan na siya nag-post ng mga salita laban sa akin, tulad ng Pinupuna akin? Gusto ko lang na gawin itong sigurado kung ginawa ko ba ang paglabag laban sa batas ng cyber bullying? Ngunit friends ko rin naman sya sa facebook ko. Pero itoy itinannggi niya na ang post daw na masasamang salita ay di daw para sa akin, na sa aming conversation ay parang napatunayan ko na para sa akin nga base doon sa mga comment.Sya ang nag post una ng masama at akoy nag react lang sa post niya, na wala naming bahid na kasinungalingan at pang pupuna against sa kanya. Thank you po.
