Commonsense Media - Cyberbullying
Texting, social sites, email, and IM -- this is how kids socialize. They tune in to find out who's dating who or what the math homework is. But kids can also use these tools to threaten, harass, or gang up on other kids.
As the drama plays out among a circle of friends, everyone becomes involved. Kids take turns playing different roles, as the aggressor, the victim, the bystander -- or they may stand up and try to stop it.
