Most people are familiar with some kind of online harassament, especially children and teenagers whose social life is partially constituted by virtual interaction. The reasons why young people bully their peers online and offline are usually very similar, but the aggression takes place in a different environment and in different forms. An important factor is to be able to recognize what's the line that divides a joke and actual bullying. Proper cyberbullying can be defined as the systematic and repetitive use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, expose, impersonate or target another person. It's facilitated by the impersonal nature of online platforms and perpetrators feel more powerful behind the screen compared to face to face bullying.
