      Cyberbullying is any bullying through technology, usually using mobile phones and the Internet or combinations of these. Methods used to bully include texting degoratory messages on mobile phones with young people showing them to their friends before sending to the victim; slagging or excluding someone in a chat room; inviting comments on nasty blogs or placing embarrassing or bullying videos on YouTube. It is important to distinguish if it is bullying or fighting using technology because that determines how it is best handled. Just because young people send a nasty text or use instant messaging to berate someone, it could be fighting between equals and not the intentional, aggressive, repeated acts of someone with more power which defines bullying.

      Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

      These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

      Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
