Definition of Cyberbullying
Through research, we have discovered that we can look at cyber bullying through different lenses. And through this process we have come up with several definitions of cyberbullying. Though all somewhat similar, there are different key aspects that can be pulled from each.
Cyberbullying is any cyber-communication or publication posted or sent by a minor online, by instant message, e-mail, website, diary site, online profile, interactive game, handheld device, cellphone, game device, digital camera or video, webcam or use of any interactive digital device that is intended to frighten, embarrass, harass, hurt, set up, cause harm to, extort, or otherwise target another minor.
Cyberbullying is the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner.
Cyberbullying is when a person plays the mean girl part with knowing else to do, but try to humor herself by belittling another.
Cyber bullying: a hurtful means of communication through interactive technology such as text messages, emails and social media networks. This means of communication is usually through a dyad of people where one there is a bully and one being bullied. Many individuals have difficulties stopping this type of behavior due to the fact that it can be done away from parental eyes. Most commonly cyberbullying takes place between minors, but from our original case of Amanda Todd, the "bulliers" involved both minors and an adult.
