With the increase of social networking sites

With the increase of social networking sites, online activity and messaging apps, cyberbullying is on the increase. According to stopbullying.gov, cyberbullying is bullying that takes place over digital devices like cellphones, computers, and tablets which includes posting or sharing negative content and personal or private information about someone else causing embarrassment or humiliation. Social media has made it very easy to perpetrate for online stalking and cyberbullying. Social media has also been associated with mental health problems especially among young adults according to the 2017 Journal of Adolescent Health. Most social media networks state that bullying, abusive behaviors including harassment, impersonation and identity theft are prohibited. However, statistics show that no action was taken when cyberbullying was reported which displays the irresponsibility of these social media networks.
