Abstract

This article reviews what research has learned about cyberbullying, and the practical implications of those research findings. In general, there are few firm conclusions that can be drawn from the extant literature, as differences in definitions, methods, and measures make it impossible to compare findings across studies. We do have enough information to identify important trends with respect to associations with traditional bullying, gender, age, risk factors, and outcomes. Even though the research is not yet conclusive, we have sufficient knowledge to inform prevention and intervention strategies.
