Bullying is the act of causing another person damage or injury whether physically or psychologically through the use of malicious words or actions. It is a form of abuse perpetrated by people who have damaging intentions against others.
There are many types of bullying. The attacks may be through actions or words. Verbal abuse takes place when a bully harasses another person by speaking vulgar and offensive words to the latter. Physical abuse employs acts which inflict pain or pressure to the other person. The intention of a bully is to cause fear, discomfort or anxiety to their target. The bully will resort to negative actions in order to produce the intended negative effect.
Bullying commonly takes place in sites where people mingle and interrelate such as offices, schools, homes and other public places. When people are in constant exposure with each other, the intention to bully becomes prevalent. There has to be a certain level of connection between the bully and the victim before the bullying can actually take place. Thus, the intense connectivity brought about by the broad and far-reaching scope of the internet has significantly increased the incidence of bullying. With the proliferation of internet usage, it has become easier for internet bullies to intensify the effects of their actions against their victims.
Internet bullying is a form of personal attack which employs threats, pressure and intimidation through the avenues of internet technology. The bullying may take place by the use of messaging sites, blogs, online forums, electronic mail and other means of cyber technology. When internet bullying takes place, its victims are harassed, intimidated and are left with damaged reputations.
Internet bullying is also sometimes called cyberbullying or digital bullying. This type of harassment has become prevalent together with the rise of cyber technology. People now live in a world without borders. Almost everyone is connected through the internet. Data and information travel at a fast rate. Internet bullying therefore takes the concept of bullying to a much higher level. A single person’s small act of maligning someone can reach hundreds of people in a split-second.
There are many methods of internet bullying. It can range from the mere mention of mean words to something more dangerous such as death threats. Internet bullies may use crude, offensive and vulgar language in an attempt to affect the personal status and condition of their victims. The attack may be direct or indirect. Direct attacks are done when the attacker directly communicates the harrying words to the victim. On the other hand, indirect attacks are made through the online posting of malicious writings or commentaries.
