In the digital age, it’s hard to find someone that you haven’t communicated with through technological means. This is especially true of pre-teens and teenagers. A potential negative affect of this is cyberbullying. KidsHealth.org defines cyberbullying as “the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person. By definition, it occurs among young people.” They go on to say that cyberbullying is not always easily identified. “Other acts are less obvious, like impersonating a victim online or posting personal information, photos, or videos designed to hurt or embarrass another person. Some kids report that a fake account, webpage, or online persona has been created with the sole intention to harass and bully.”
Given this extended definition, how often does cyberbullying occur? NoBullying.com put together this infographic to help you get a sense of what cyberbullying looks like by the numbers.
