What is "cyberbullying?"

Modern technology takes bullying to a higher level. Bullies now use the internet and cell phones. The National Crime Prevention Council identifies cyberbullying as actions where the bully:

  • Tricks a victim by pretending to be someone else
  • Spreads lies and rumors
  • Tricks victims into revealing personal information
  • Sends or forwards mean text messages
  • Posts pictures of victims without their consent
