What can I do with cyber bullying on Facebook?

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

Dear Lawyers,
My friend posted on her Facebook wall that she had an extra ticket & trip to Coachella "Coachella? Anyone? Week one tickets. Pleeeease I have an extra ticket and would greatly appreciate it if someone would come with me."

I (the first) responded on her wall post and e-mailed her that I would love to take it. However, she wrote to me "Hi, I'm sorry the tickets cost $400 and I would feel more comfortable with someone I personally know..."

Her cousin and friend (who know me) also mocked me on the wall post. I am feeling they stepped all over me.

She posted the ad for her FB friends but did not give what she promised. And I lose the trip, hotels and ticket to Coachella. What can I do? How should I respond to their actions to make them stop bullying me?

Thank you so much

    Your complaints are more personal than legal.
