This study investigated cyberbullying and its social, emotional and psychological impacts on adolescents. Its objective is to provide additional data and understanding of the influence of cyberbullying on various variables affecting adolescents. These days, adolescents have access to a wide range of social media that offer them the opportunities to connect, create and collaborate with each other. The down-side of these growing opportunities is that they also create more possibilities for negative experiences such as online bullying. Over the last 10 years, many studies have been published about cyberbullying that have provided increased insight into the prevalence, determinants, coping strategies, and (health-) consequences related to cyberbullying (cyberbullying: from theory to intervention). This study will give a thorough overview of the state of the art concerning cyberbullying research (e.g., what is cyberbullying, cyberbullying vs. traditional bullying, its consequences and mediums of cyberbullying.)
For this research paper to have a global scale relevance, both primary and secondary data were used. A sample survey consisting of data from 800 adolescents of Bharatpur district was taken among whom 570 of them admitted to being cyberbullied at least once in their lifetime. Furthermore, in the case of 231 adolescents, there was no action taken against the bullies. The main conclusion of this research is that although cyberbullying existence has been proven, effective measures against it have not been fully developed yet.
