Online bullying is a pressing topic that has been causing alarm worldwide for over a decade. It is an electronic form of bullying ranging from insulting private text messages to the publication of embarrassing videos on YouTube or Facebook. Cyberbullying can legitimately be regarded as an unedifying by-product of the social trend toward digital communication. Accordingly, cyberbullying is not only an individual problem but also a social phenomenon that needs to be looked at in a broader context. The individuals concerned, their families, peers, schools and the societal context are all important agents not only in the origination and maintenance of cyberbullying but also in its prevention and intervention.
