Most of us have access to technology via mobile phones, tablets, or computers, and these means of communication open up a whole new way of connecting with family and friends. Unfortunately, these tools can also be used to cause harm and hurt others. All bullying is cowardly and causes deliberate harm to the target.
Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic mediums, usually a computer or mobile device. Social networks are the most common way cyberbullying occurs and media bullying (harrassment by various news media networks) is also a big problem. Cyberbullies use texts, emails, blogs, chat rooms, online forums, social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, instant messages and online gaming platforms.
Cyberbullying can take place in the workplace as well as in school and because of the anonymous nature of this type of bullying it is very difficult to trace the perpetrator. It also occurs 24/7 and because of this there is no relief for the target of cyberbullying.
