Cyberbullying

  • A 2011 Pew Internet study reports that 88% of media-using teens have witnessed other people be mean or cruel on social network sites. 19% of teens, almost one in five, have been bullied in the past year in some form (in person, online, by text, or by phone)1. A 2014 Pew study reports that 73% of adult internet users have seen someone be harassed in some way online. The open nature of the internet allows people to target others easily and without the same repercussions that would exist in face-to-face interaction
