If it isn’t something you would want your boss or grandma seeing, then it’s probably best not to put it on the internet.
Are you experiencing online bullying? The best response is action without reaction. Use # to stop the abuse in its tracks.
So you’ve used the stop sign emoji and they haven’t stopped. The skill is to disengage while still bringing attention to their behaviour. You can use another #. If you need to, you can also report abuse to Instagram by simply swiping left on a comment and pressing “Report this comment”.
Remember their behaviour is about them not about you.
If you find yourself feeling bullied over a private message, or on your own personal social media page, remember you’re in control of who you keep in your circle on social media. Just give them the and then hit ‘block’ and ‘delete’.
