Cyber-bullying - Bullying in the Digital World

Cyber-bullying means using computers, cell phones, and other technology to hurt, scare, or embarrass other people.

 

Cyber-bullying is when someone is bullied using digital resources, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or other social media sites. Cyber-bullying is bullying that occurs through digital technology, such as text messages, e-mail, and material posted on social media sites.

 

It can happen 24 hours a day, any place where a child has online access, and it’s especially harmful because it can occur anonymously and be spread quickly to hundreds of bystanders. (www.promoteprevent.org)
