ABSTRACT
This study investigates the experiences and perceptions of 168 undergraduate college students regarding cyberbullying, including a focus on the role of social networking in cyberbullying incidents. Personal experiences of students were explored, including experiences that students have had as victims of cyberbullying and as witnesses of cyberbullying incidents involving others. Research found that while most cyberbullying incidents occur during high school, cyberbullying is continuing at the university level. In addition, social networking sites such as Facebook, along with text messaging, are the primary technologies being used for online harassment.
