Abstract

Many children and adolescents have fully embraced the digital world, posting blogs, accessing social networking websites, watching videos, and sending instant messages as typical activities of their daily lives. The digital world has afforded a variety of opportunities for children and adolescents, although this world is not without risks, including sexual predation, online grooming, identity theft, accessing fake information, and the accidental viewing of gory and violent content. Another risk associated with children's and adolescents' digital technology use is cyberbullying. The aim of this chapter is to review research from around the world on cyberbullying to examine the nature, extent, causes, and consequences associated with children's and adolescents' involvement in these behaviors. The studies reviewed in this chapter include cross-sectional, longitudinal, cross-sequential, mixedmethods, qualitative, and quantitative research designs. Research is drawn from various disciplines, including psychology, sociology, media and communication studies, education, social work, and computer science. The chapter concludes with a discussion of recommendations and a call for cyberbullying to be considered a global concern.
