(At least) 75 percent of American adults have been witness to cyberbullying and (at least) 40 percent have experienced it first-hand. This is according to a 2014 PEW Research study.
The types of harassment between the sexes is the same, varying only slightly as to whether men or women experience a certain type more. Cyberbullies tend to engage in:
- Name calling
- Embarrassing someone
- Physical threats
- Long-term harassment
- Sexual harassment
The PEW results also show that about half of the targets didn’t know their tormentors.
