Cyberbullying

Bullying isn’t just something that happens with children, it is also prevalent among college students and in the workplace. Virtual harassment and threats are just as serious as those made in person, and can feel more devastating because of possible anonymity, public nature, audience size, and long-lasting effects. Cyberbullying can be extremely damaging to a student’s personal and academic life.
