Cyberbullying is the use of phone, internet, and other mobile communication gadgets to intimidate, terrorize or frighten a child. Cyberbullies generally deliberately make a person depressed or afraid. During cyberbullying, the bully sends threatening or intimidating text messages, sms, instant messages, emails etc to the victim. The specifics and methods used are usually a factor of the bully’s imagination, and technology available. What is however certain is that as more children/teenagers are getting online the incidence of cyberbulling continue to rise. This is also the case as more communication channels are available for online interactions.
Children and teenagers are typically victims/perpetrators of cyber-bullying. Hence, cyber bullying is usually from one child/teenager to another. This implies that victim of cyberbullying may also become the perpetrator. This is the case when a former victim tries to ‘revenge’ or generally practice the newly acquired ‘skill.’ And just like that, a new cyberbully is born!
When it is an adult versus a child, the dynamics changes. It becomes cyber-stalking or cyber-harrasment
As earlier mentioned, cyberbullying happens among peers. Hence, some victims (children and teenagers) of cyber bulling are often scared, ashamed or too embarrassed to tell their parent. They also find it difficult to seek counseling from older people for similar reasons. This makes it difficult to detect cyberbullying. Perpetrators also seem to enjoy the ‘power’, or may be ignorant of what their action could lead to. Either way, there is always a consequence.
