9 The latest report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reveals that cyberbullying and harassment are affecting millions of Americans.
Researchers from the CDC and Johns Hopkins University analyzed data from over 300,000 adults in the U.S. who were interviewed in late February through April.
The report found that 1 in 5 U.N. children have been victims of cyberbulling, and that more than 6.5 million adults had experienced some form of cyber harassment.
“There is growing evidence that cyber bullying is affecting our communities and society as a whole,” Dr. William H. Hochberg, the report’s lead author, said in a news release.
“This study demonstrates that cyber-bullying can have significant long-term effects on the well-being of victims, their families and communities.”
The researchers also found that cyber harassment is more prevalent in younger children and adolescents.
In addition, cyberbullies and harassment victims experience more anxiety and depression, according to the report.
According to the CDC, cyber harassment can include “the use of social media, direct messaging, targeted social networking, text messages, and emails to report harassment or threats, and online harassment.”
Researchers found that nearly 4.2 million people in the United States were victims of a form of bullying in the past year, and 6.7 million were victims in 2015.
Cyberbullies are often referred to as “cyberpredators,” and the researchers found that bullying is prevalent in communities with low levels of cyber safety.
For instance, cyberpredators were found to be responsible for 3.2 percent of all cyberbullied children in the 2015-16 school year.
Another study from the same group of researchers found cyberbullishers use the Internet to harass and demean people online, and the authors concluded that bullying online was the leading cause of psychological distress for cyberpredator victims.
A third study from researchers from Columbia University and the University of California at Berkeley also found cyberpredicators targeted at children.
More than one in three cyberbullers said they used social media to target people online.
Among cyberpredicts, 77 percent said they were motivated to target others because of their gender, ethnicity, or disability.
Overall, nearly 2.4 million children ages 12-17 reported cyberbulled in 2015, and nearly 1 in 4 cyberpredictors had experienced cyberbullishing, according the study.
One in 10 cyberbulli s reported being victims of online harassment in the previous year.
Researchers also found a disproportionate number of cyberpredictions were made against women, which is a particularly concerning finding.
Men accounted for 31 percent of cyber predicts and 28 percent of victims.
Men made up about a third of cyber bullying victims and 23 percent of victimization cyberprediction victims.
Men are also more likely to be victims of digital bullying, according this study.
Women were more likely than men to report cyberbullial behavior and cyberpredatory behavior, but were not more likely or more likely, the researchers said.
Some of the most prevalent forms of cyber victimization are stalking, stalking by a cyberpredicate, cybercrime, cyber-harassment, and cyberbullocking.
Study results also revealed that cyber victimizations are concentrated in young adults and men, while older adults were more prone to cyberbulls.
Hochberg said that it’s important to remember that cyber bullies are just one type of online behavior, and there are many other types of cyber-predators out there, including cyber predators and cyber criminals.
Hachimian said that while cyberbullaging and cyber harassment are not unique to the Internet, the prevalence of the cyberbullening phenomena in society is, and these types of crimes are not limited to the digital world.””
There are also other types, like cyberpredicted child molesters and cybercriminals who target young adults.”
Hachimian said that while cyberbullaging and cyber harassment are not unique to the Internet, the prevalence of the cyberbullening phenomena in society is, and these types of crimes are not limited to the digital world.
“Cyber bullying is an ongoing problem,” he said.
“Cyberspace is not a neutral space for the abuse of people or ideas.
It’s a battleground where violence and intimidation take place, and this violence and aggression is not only directed at individuals, but also at groups.”
