Some people like to use technology to threaten, shame, harass, or target an individual. This is called “cyberbullying,” and it takes place on the Internet. In a nutshell, cyberbullying refers to any misdeed carried out online to cause harm to a specific target.

Examples of cyberbullying include sending hurtful instant messages (IMs) to a victim, posting his or her embarrassing photos on social networks, or spreading rumors about them online.
