Application: Technology and Cyber-Bullying

Research indicates as many as 50% of U.S. youths are victims of cyber-bullying. The majority of these victims seldom report the cyber-bullying to parents or law enforcement (Hinduja & Patchin, 2008). While having similar characteristics of traditional face-to-face bullying, cyber-bullying reaches beyond the playground. Cyber-bullies can enter into unsuspecting victims’ homes across the country and the world. Once cyber-bullies have access to victims, they can proceed to use coercion, intimidation, harassment, and threats. This can result in short- and long-term effects on the victims.

For this assignment, examine technologies used for cyber-bullying and consider effects cyber-bullying might have on victims. Then evaluate the effectiveness of tactics currently used by law enforcement to combat cyber-bullying.

  • Provide three examples of technologies and explain how each could be used in cyber-bullying.
  • Explain at least two effects that cyber-bullying might have on victims.

Technology and Cyber-bullying

Cyberbullying involves the use of technology to send intimidating, hate and threatening
messages to victims. In the United States, despite the use of relevant laws to curb the crime, it is
rampant. About 50 percent of teenagers have been victimized via cyberbullying at least once in
their lives in the United States of America (Hinduja & Patchin, 2008). Therefore, it is important

cyberbullying and then discuss the means that law enforcement uses to tackle the problem in the
United States of America.
