Cyberbullying is a widespread phenomenon. This term refers to using the internet to intimidate, harass or harm another person. And while bullying is an age-old problem, it largely takes place online now rather than in-person. Cyberbullying often occurs on social media sites, text messages and emails.
Social media platforms are an essential part of our society. Millions of people use websites and apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat every day. Most people even get their news from social media platforms. Due to the skyrocketing popularity of social media websites, it is no surprise that people use them to commit crimes.
