The digital world evolves very fast. Social media platforms, apps, and new devices are in production every day, and teens are most often the first to use them. As social networking and online interaction become more popular among teens, facebook and Twitter have become the most common platforms for cyberbully attacks.
Last year the American SPCC.org reported that 20% of students in grades 9-12 were electronically bullied in the past year, 70% witnessed some form of bullying either in person or online. Additionally, 55.2% of LGBT students also experienced cyberbullying.
Cyberbullying, sexting, posting hateful messages or content and participating in negative group conversation online not only harm other teens, but this behavior can have a negative implication on bullies as well. The negative effect can damage their chances of getting into their chosen college or getting the job they want.
