Examples Of Cyberbullying And How It Affects People Targeted By It
Internet defamation can come in the form of cyberbullying which may appear as teasing, taunting or public shaming. It typically appears on popular social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok.
Being the target of cyberbullying can affect a person’s mental health and reputation. This is true for people of all ages and occupations. Cyberbullying may be subtle or overt. Questionable content may fall in a gray zone between what is legal and illegal while still causing great harm.
Does the concept of free speech apply to cyberbullies? Court case outcomes provide evidence that the answer may be no when people suffer harm unfairly through cyberbullying.
