What is Cyber Bullying?

Cyber bullying, also known as electronic bullying or online social cruelty, is defined as bullying:

  • through email
  • through instant messaging
  • in a chat room
  • on a website or gaming site
  • through digital messages or images sent to a cellular phone

Although sharing certain features in common with traditional bullying, cyber bullying represents a unique phenomenon that has only recently begun to receive attention in both the popular press and in academic circles. Cyber bullying not only looks and feels a bit different than traditional bullying, but presents some unique challenges in dealing with it. (Kowalski, Limber and Agatston, 2007)
