According to UNICEF, Cyberbullying is a type of bullying that occurs on social media, emails, games and other online platforms. Like different types of bullying, it’s a repetitive behavior that aims to frighten, provoke or discredit the target, for example:
- Posting lies or embarrassing pictures of a person on social media
- Send harmful messages or threats
- Impersonating someone and sending messages or posting content on his/her behalf
Cyberbullying is the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person. Cyberbullying can range from embarrassing or cruel online posts or digital pictures to online threats, harassment, and negative comments, to stalking through emails, websites, social media platforms, and text messages.
