What is cyberbullying? Cyberbullying is when a person is harassed, threatened, embarrassed or willfully targeted by someone else through the use of electronic technology. This can include blogs, cell phone text messages and any other digital medium. Cyberbullies work in many of the same ways as do traditional schoolyard bullies, and quite often, the cyberbullying occurs between minors. Unlike schoolyard bullying, the ease and accessibility of the Internet can have more far-reaching and devastating consequences. A cyberbully is someone who:
  • Creates or adds hateful messages about a person to sites/blogs, sometimes joining others who are doing the same.
  • Sends threatening or hateful messages to the victim via email, text messages, etc.
  • Posts or digitally distributes humiliating pictures or links of their victim or victim's family.
