Cyber bullying occurs when electronic gadgets like mobile phones, computers, social media, and Internet services are used as a means to intentionally hurt someone in cyberspace. With cyber bullying, there is no physical escape for the victim – negative content can be shared, saved and spread online, and a victim can be “reached” at all times. So it is difficult for a victim to walk away from cyber bullying, as compared to physical bullying where it is confined to the time and place a person is in.
By hiding behind the screen, it is easier for cyber bullies to be mean and harder for them see how their online posts have hurt others. In cyberspace, bystanders can become bullies if they share hurtful posts or add on to the nasty comments. Once a hurtful online post goes viral, it is difficult to stop, and even more challenging to remove it.
