-Abusing personal information.

The effects of cyberbullying.
Even though cyberbullying cannot physically hurt you, it can still leave you feeling mentally vulnerable and very upset. You can also feel scared, lonely and stressed and that there’s no way out. Escaping cyberbullying can be very difficult. Because anyone can get access to a mobile phone or the internet almost anywhere, it can be tough for those on the receiving end to avoid it, even in the safety of their own home.

This charity poster is for animals. The background is white, this helps the dog and the boxing gloves to stand out, the boxing gloves represent fighting, hurting someone or something in this case animals. The gloves are red that represents blood which also represent hurt. The dog is sitting down with its head down to the gloves, this shows that the dog is sad, and he cant protect himself, the dog cannot put on the gloves like we can, therefore the dog cannot protect its self. Also they have used this dog, because the dog does not look viscious like most other dogs, it looks weak and friendly which gives affect on the viewer to feel they need to help. The slogan 'animals cant protect themselves' makes the viewer feel pitty for the animals that are being slaughterd.

Analysis of charity advertising campaign

The only colour is the rattle (kids toy) and the blood. They are all primary colours - Childlike.
Red, blue and yellow are all bright colours, they are affective on the white background, it attracts the viewers eye.
The slogan 'dont lose control' is made to look like a child has wrote it - speaking to the audience.
The blood had looked liked it had been splattered against the white surface - suggests violence.
Kids toy - Rattle - shaped like a baseball bat, to represent the weapon.
