TYPES OF BULLYING

There are many different types of bullying a student may experience, such as physical, verbal, emotional, or cyber. While all forms are equally hurtful, many behaviors harm students emotionally rather than physically or happen in online environments versus the physical world — making it harder for adults to identify.

WHAT IS CYBERBULLYING?

Cyberbullying is hurting someone again and again using a computer, a cellphone, or another kind of electronic technology. Examples of cyberbullying include the following:

  • Texting or emailing insults or nasty rumors about someone
  • Posting mean comments about someone on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites
  • Threatening someone through email or other technology
  • Tricking someone into sharing embarrassing information
  • Forwarding private text messages to hurt or embarrass someone
  • Posting embarrassing photos or videos of someone
  • Pretending to be someone else online to get that person in trouble or embarrass her
  • Creating a website to make fun of someone
