If you don’t feel comfortable with your online experience make sure you talk to someone.
There are many sites which a user can go to for advice and there are always people to talk to.
If you can, be open to a friend or parent, they are always the most supportive.
Don't try to fight cyber bullies; you will only be encouraging their behaviour. Try to ignore them if you can, the more you can ignore it the more likely they'll lose interest.
Be conscious about the kinds of images you upload; they could fall into the wrong hands. This has become a common form of cyber-bullying now amongst young people in the UK. People can use explicit images to ruin someone’s social or professional life; it can be emotionally devastating long term. A good rule is to only upload pictures you’d be happy for your parents to see.

If it’s really serious – like you think the person contacting you may be an adult who wants to abuse you or your mates, report the issue on this thinkuknow site using ClickCEOP.
