Reporting to have embarrassing, inappropriate, or hurtful posts or comments removed from social media as soon as possible, is essential. Reporting to the platform is generally the first step but if you have ongoing concerns, or if the incident is serious (such as severe cyberbullying, image-based abuse, or involving child exploitation material), consider reporting it to the Office of the eSafety Commissioner (Australia) or Netsafe (New Zealand). In some cases, it may also be appropriate to seek assistance from your child's school or local law enforcement.
