Cyberbullying is a form of bullying or harassment using electronic means. Cyberbullying are also known as online bullying. It has become increasingly common, especially among teenagers. Cyberbullying is when someone, typically teens, bully or harass others on social media sites. Harmful bullying behavior can include posting rumors, threats, sexual remarks, a victims’ personal information, or pejorative labels. Bullying or harassment can be identified by repeated behavior and an intent to harm. Victims may have lower self-esteem, increased suicidal ideation, and a variety of emotional responses, including being scared, frustrated, angry, and depressed.
Awareness in the United States has risen in the 2010s, due in part to high-profile cases. Several US states and other countries have laws specific to cyberbullying. Some are designed to specifically target teen cyberbullying, while others use laws extending from the scope of physical harassment. In cases of adult cyber harassment, these reports are usually filed beginning with local police.
Research has demonstrated a number of serious consequences of cyberbullying victimization.
Internet trolling is a common form of bullying over the Internet in an online community (such as in online gaming or social media) in order to elicit a reaction, disruption, or for someone’s own personal amusement. Cyberstalking is another form of bullying or harassment that uses electronic communications to stalk a victim; this may pose a credible threat to the victim.
Bridge Project 4 is an extension of the research in Seminar class. New media art has been greatly developed in recent years. At the same time, new media art has brought great help to a large extent. Like 3D Printing helps handicapped to have high quality artificial limb. But technology also brings a disadvantage to society. The large group number is using social media now. A new form of violence was born which is cyber violence. A lot of people suffer from depression, even suicidal. So I make a project about that to show the seriousness of the cyber violence for society. I use ten types of insulting or humiliate word which always show in common to combined the word violence.
