Since this seems to be happening more and more in our chat room, before you think about spreading a rumor, read this.

Spreading rumors as a way to turn people against someone or ruin their reputation, maybe because they are envious, is a form of bullying — and it can have serious consequences for the person doing it.

WHY DO PEOPLE SPREAD RUMORS

People Spread Rumors When it Helps Their Social Status

People Spread Rumors When it Helps Their Self-Image

People Spread Rumors When They Believe the Information

People Spread Rumors When They Feel Anxiety

People Spread Rumors When There’s Uncertainty

People Spread Rumors When they feel that the Information is Important, whether it is true or not

I really thought most people were mature enough not to start rumors, as that usually goes on in junior high school, not when you are 17. I guess I was wrong. How sad some people need to focus on someone who is nothing but nice to them and start a horrible rumor.

Wonder how those people that start rumors would like it if someone started a bad one about them and it got back to their parents or friends? Would be a different story then.
