Today let's talk about bullies. Not those who grab our candies when we were tiny tots. These are about those big enough people who still bully others for their own profits.
Cyber bullying, how is that. I could give you and example. Mr A sells gadgets, and so do Mr B. Then Mr A realize that more customers go to Mr B instead of buying from him. So what he do? He post status in Facebook, Twitter, wrote in his blog, that Mr B is selling fake items. Worst than that, he make new Facebook account, and slanders Mr B as if Mr B has cheat him (as a customer).
This type of bully is not new in business cyberspace. Some people will say its normal, and just keep one eyes closed about it. What happen next, these bullies become more and more aggressive, making cyberspace a vulnerable world to new entrepreneurs who tried to break the market.
We have to know our rights. These bullies should be teach a lesson. if you have this kind of situation, report it to your state or country authorities. In Malaysia, we have Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia (SKMM). Please act by reporting your problem to them. They can trace who ever that person is. However, don't forget to print screen the things you have been slandered or bullied. How to do it? If you are using Windows, have a look at your keyboard, Look for the Prt Scr or Print Screen button on top right . Press it once while you have the screen you want to catch is on. open a Word document, and click paste (right click your mouse and select paste or just find the paste icon on the menu bar).
Start acting now. Stop cyber bullying in business space!
