Cyber bullying, perpetrators, victims, digital media


The rise of technology in recent years has made the internet a widely used medium for all ages and social groups. It enables users to communicate, exchange information, be informed, work and be entertained. Through the internet, users can express their views and ideas, engage in art, express their thoughts, make purchases, search for material and information, but also get in touch with people from different regions and countries.
