What is Cyber-Bullying?Cyber-Bullying is bullying which is done electronically.

Cyber-Bullying is unique from regular bullying because it could happen anywhere at anytime. It is hard to target the source sometimes and can spread rapidly. It is really hard to delete the messages after they have been posted too.
