Cyberbullying Survey

Cyberbullying Survey

A recent survey of youth ages 8-17 conducted by Microsoft unveiled some interesting conclusions regarding online bullying:

• 58% say they know a lot or some about online bullying

• 54% are very or somewhat worried about online bullying

• 86% report being bullied online and/or offline although most bullying is offline

• 24% admit to bullying someone else online

• 42% admit to bullying someone else offline

Those surveyed were twice as likely (63% vs. 37%) to be bullied online if they bully someone else online

Those surveyed were more likely (46% vs. 29%) to be bullied online if they spend more than 10 hours per week on the Internet
