Cyberbullying is the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass or target another person. It may also
include cyber-harassment or cyber-stalking. According to a Cox Communications and Harris Interactive
survey released in May 2009 (Teen Online and Cell Phone Behavior: Cyberbullying, Sexting and Parental
Controls), one in five teens ages 13 to 18 have cyberbullied someone online or via text message, and one in
10 teens have been cyberbullied. Four in five teens believe that cyberbullying is easier to get away with and
hide from parents than face-to-face bullying.

Some teens say and do terrible things to each other online because they don't see the direct effects of their actions.
