Why is it a Problem?Cyberbullying is a problem these days because of how much technology you studnets are involved with. If you are constantly surrounded by it there is the constant potential to get bullied using technology. For the studnets who are already being cyberbullied it is a problem because they can never get away from it. They can recieve a message whether they are in school or not and whether they are alone or not. This is so hard for many students because it is never ending. Also, studnets who are being bullied online are more than likely being bullied at school as well. Another reason it is such a problem is because the bullies can do it anonymously making them feel even more confortable to be as cruel as they want to be.
