From Social Media to School Halls: Understanding and Preventing Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying involves an imbalance of physical or emotional power and an intent to cause harm, like traditional bullying, and is not limited to the school day or school grounds. Cyberbullying is a form of bullying that occurs online and/or is perpetrated via technology.

Cyberbullying can take place on social media, through videos and texts, or as part of online games. Instances can involve name-calling, the sharing of embarrassing photos, and various forms of public shaming and humiliation. By Erik Ofgang 11.16.23
