Cyber Bullying: An Impact on Adolescents College Students
In this literature review, the author will be reviewing literature regarding cyber bullying and how it impacts upon college students. This is especially fertile ground for research because there is not much information about how such electronic aggression affects college students. The focus of most of the research has been upon younger adolescents. In such individuals, concern is widespread that new forms of electronic communication open up new avenues for aggression among young people. This subject is particularly interesting to the author. In training to be a customer service representative, this author was exposed to anecdotal data that showed that customers were more aggressive in instant messages, emails and on the phone than in person. The findings of most of the studies in the literature review really reflect anecdotal information about technology being a driving factor in electronic bullying.

Bullying may be a practice that has been around since the beginnings of human history, but with the increasing access that people have to technology a new medium is now used by aggressors. Cyber bullying is an act that involves using computers, cell phones and other sorts of media to consistently harass others. The object of the bullying, to cause physical or psychological damage to another, is the same, but the perpetrators have changed. Girls are both more likely to use cyber means to bully and they are also more likely to be the targets. Because the practice is so new, there are no prevention programs which specifically target cyber bullying. Also, because this type of aggression occurs in a private setting, it more often goes unnoticed by parents and other concerned adults. esearchers need to further understand the nuances of cyber bullying and determine the best methods to combat….

Bullying and Cyber Bullying are major issues in the world today, particularly in young people who are either in middle school or high school. Bullying happens at others stages in life, but it seems to be between ages 12 and 17 that kids have the worst problems with being bullied. It is truly tragic what happens to kids who are targeted by bullies. The definition of bullying is "unwanted words or physical actions that can make a person feel bad; includes physical violence, spreading rumors, social exclusion or isolation, manipulation, teasing, and threats." These terms only hint at the terrible actions of a bully and the impact they have on their victims. Teens who are bullied have to deal with misery nearly every day they are at school. They are harassed both at school and at home through their cellular phones and computers. Not enough parents are aware of what….
Cyber Bullying and Its Impact
Over the past decade, attention has been drawn to cyber-bullying by the media and researchers. esearch on cyber-bullying has covered the various behavior aspects; focusing mainly on demographic and personal factors of the involved individuals. Particularly, the research has been targeted at factors among adolescents; who account for a majority of cyber-bullying cases. Nonetheless, it is important that other populations are studied too -- even adults where cyber-bullying may not be as common -- so that evaluations are made on the previous findings. Several personal factors linked to adolescent cyber-bullying, e.g. level of self-esteem, have been noted to change as one gets older (Obins et al., 2002). It is necessary therefore that studies be done whether or not such factors remain linked to cyber-bullying in various groups of different ages. Moreover, while research on cyber-bullying on adults is taking shape, they are limited to identifying individuals….

The effects of the recent trend known as cyberbullying was investigated. Current literature was examined on the subject in order to establish a general basis of the various potentialities of this harmful activity. Upon synthesizing a working knowledge and hypothesis from this data, a comprehensive research method was developed whereby participants were asked to temporarily forgo their privacy in online and electronic environments. y allowing the research team to assiduously record massive amounts of peer-to-peer social media and electronic interactions, participants accurately depicted the frequency and harshness of cyberbullying activity.
As society has come to realize, bullies can have some profound affects on the overall developmental lives of their victims. The concept of bullying itself implies that someone with a perceived sense of superiority antagonizes another individual that he or she identifies as weak. This type of deplorable behavior can occur in many forms including physical, psychological, emotional and social. Traditionally,….

Testing Assumptions About Cyberbullying: Perceived Distress Associated With Acts of Conventional and Cyberbullying
Bauman & Newman (2012), in light of the considerable attention that cyber bullying has received in the recent past and the assumptions the phenomenon had received, undertook to test assumptions about cyber bullying. Cyber bullying in essence has much to do with using the knowledge of information and communication technology to harm other people's social status, relationships, and reputation. Conspiracy that clouds cyber bullying continues considerable attention from popular media. Protracted legal tussles have been witnessed in instances when reports of isolated cases have been made. Bauman & Newman (2012), sought to establish whether experts speculation that the potential from cyber bullying was in deed greater than the dangers posed by conventional bullying. The fact that this assumption had not been empirically informed their resolve to conduct this study.

One definition of Cyber bullying is that it is the employment of technology by a person to intimidate, upset, harass, demean and humiliate another person. Targets chosen by cyber bullies are no different from those picked by face-to-face bullies. These targets share characteristics such as being lonely or loners, vulnerable, socially uncomfortable, and hence mostly isolated. Some bullies choose to remain anonymous so as to escape accountability for their actions but still inflict the harm they intended. The devastating effects of cyber bullying are far reaching because the audience is larger than just the person targeted. This bullying can happen in many ways. Blogs and websites designed specifically for bullying a child are some of these ways. These avenues are used to expose embarrassing pictures, threatening messages and even private Instant Messages (IM). Bullies also use these forums to embolden others like them to "gang up" against the target.….

Independent and dependent variables used in the study
In an experiment, the independent variables are the variables manipulated by the experimenter, while the dependent variables are the aspects of the experiment that are 'dependent' or affected by the independent variables. In Hinduja and Patchin's 2011 research for the Cyberbullying esearch Center, the independent variables under study were the rates of cyberbullying, while the dependent variables were the characteristics associated with teens who engaged in bullying.
The study found that cell phones were the preferred method to use in cyberbullying and girls were found to be far more likely to engage in the practice. There was no distinction in terms of the racial profile of cyberbullying victims or perpetrators -- all were equally apt to engage in the crime. Other characteristics correlated with cyberbullying were a negative school atmosphere. egarding the victims, victims were more likely to have low self-esteem and to have….
Amanda Todd Story
Cyber bullying is a relatively new concern that our society has to deal with. The Amanda Todd story fully illustrates the potential consequences of what cyber-bullying can have on young adults. Although the Amanda Todd story is extreme and well publicized, there are potential millions of cases that are less extreme and go unnoticed. This analysis will provide a background on the Amanda Todd story as well as the phenomenon of cyberbullying that is increasingly becoming a societal concern amongst the younger generations as the role of social media expands further and further into personal lives.
Amanda Todd was a young female living in Vancouver who was the victim of cyber bullying. hen she was in 7th grade she was very active in internet chat groups and, at one point, allowed a stranger to flatter her into flashing her exposed breasts into a camera (Grenoble, 2012). Roughly a year….

Post Discussion: Technology and Bullying
Students of the Digital Age want to use technology in all aspects of their lives because they are familiar with it and understand it. This can be incorporated into daily educational tasks -- however, there should be some cautionary factors in place. Some cautionary factors can be positive while others can be negative. One way to include digital media would be to open a learning environment that is less rigid than the traditional "brick and mortar school" concept -- that allows students to manage their time on their own, so long as they complete assignments using the various multi-sensory media available to them (Koonce, 2016, p. 249). While this would be a good, positive factor, one negative factor is that there has been almost no data compiled as to how this would work in a real world scenario -- and the need for quality controls would….

Bullying is not a new phenomenon. Yet, today's teens and children have to deal with an entirely new type of bullying online that is often more persuasive and even more harmful. The effects of cyberbullying are well documented. However, the reasons why so many youths today turn towards bullying each other online are often left of the discourse. In order to have so many victims, it is clear there are also a lot of aggressors. This research aims to explore the reasons behind some children turning to incidences of bullying others. It explores the problem through general strain theory, which essentially suggests that bullies themselves are victims of strain and thus take out their negative aggressions through bullying. Using a self reported survey with a Likert scale, this research aims to add more to the growing body of research suggesting why kids turn to cyberbullying.

Cyber Bullying and School Supervision
The article reviews the policy vacuum that currently exists when it comes to the legal expectations and obligations of schools to supervise and monitor discourse that occurs online and at the same time balance the safety of students, education and the way they interact in virtual space. The author clearly illustrates using examples how cyber bullying is something very anonymous hence it is very difficult to curb. There are some illustrations that the author gives regarding how difficult it is to deal with cases of cyber bulling as a result of inadequate laws protecting against cyber bullying. I agree with the author when he states that cyber bullying can only be curbed especially in schools if the teachers as well as parents play a collective role in controlling how students use the internet.

hat is Cyberbullying?
Cyberbullying is described as "…an individual or group willfully using information and communication involving electronic technologies to facilitate deliberate and repeated harassment or threat…" to another person (or persons) by texting, emailing, and posting on social media sites (like Facebook) mean-spirited, cruel, and often untrue messages (including images) (Dilmac, 2009, 1307). Cyberbullying is "pervasive" in North America but cyberbullying incidents have been reported worldwide, so it is not unique to any particular region, Dilmac explains (1308). And while cyberbullying differs from traditional bullying -- often the perpetrator is anonymous in cyberbullying while traditional bullies are well-known at school or in the workplace -- the results of this nefarious activity are similarly hurtful and embarrassing, Dilmac continues (1309).

New advents in technology and the increased use of social networks such as Facebook have led to the recent phenomenon of cyberbullying. News reports over the past five years have been filled with stories of young people committing suicide as a result of cyberbullying. For many years mental health professionals have warned of the consequences of bullying including suicidal ideation and suicidal behaviors. These recent suicides and suicide attempts have again brought into question the impact of bullying on children and the ways in which social support systems such as school administrators and teachers need to address this issue. The social support theory asserts that appropriate social support provides children with the mechanisms needed to cope with bullying. hile some schools have implemented zero tolerance policies as it relates to bullying other schools do not consider this type of victimization to be a serious issue.
