Different forms of Cyberbullying
Similar to traditional bullying, cyberbullying uses the internet, mobile phones, video game systems, or other technology to hurt or embarrass another person.
The power imbalance is constantly experienced 24 hours daily and is an omnipresent threat to those affected by the bullying.
Intention to Harm
It is difficult to determine if there is nasty intention behind the behaviour, especially when there can be little or no direct contact with the cyber bully.
The embarrassing content shared by the cyberbully may become a ‘viral’ post even though the cyberbullying act occurred only once.
