Bullying Enters the 21st Century: A Preliminary Examination of Risk Factors for Cyber Bullying

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The ubiquitous role of the Internet as a means of adolescent socialization, education, and communication has created a “cyber-immersed” generation. The vast majority of adolescent youth use the Internet and log on daily. One development of the new technology has been the transmutation of bullying to the electronic world. Cyber bullying is unique in that aggressors are often anonymous and therefore unlikely to be caught, victims are accessible, often on a 24 hours basis, and adults often lack the technological know-how to intervene. Cyber bullying may present itself in the form of email, instant messaging (IM), chat rooms or bash boards, small text messages (SM), websites and “voting booths”. To date, research has tended to focus on ‘‘traditional’’ (i.e. in-person) youth bullying behavior. While there is an emerging scholarly literature examining the nature and extent of aggressive behaviors online, there is comparatively little research focusing on the risk factors for cyber bullying. Using quantitative data from the International Youth Study, our paper provides an exploratory analysis of risk factors for self-reported cyber-bullying. The analysis is supplemented by qualitative data gathered from 3 focus groups with young people to better understand and explore this new phenomenon from young person’s perspectives.
