Cyber bullying and anonymous bloggers
Cyber bullying is defined as an action that ‘uses information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behaviour by an individual or group that is intended to harm another or others.’
Website browsing, discussion forums and other mobile technologies such as SMS text messaging are a part of everyday life. We have the freedom to voice our opinions and make positive or negative comments about different services or current affairs.
This has also led to some users abusing the system with the purposeful intention of causing emotional hurt.
The practice is becomingly increasingly common especially with the rise of social media platforms.
