Almost each victim of cyber harassment has been bullied through several ways like being pranked on cell phone, receiving mean texts or IMs from someone, their cell phones have been hacked, their secrets or rumours have been revealed or spread online and they have been hurt and tortured through other ways.
Unfortunately, most of the time when an individual is bullied online, it is either one of their close friends or relatives. Through research, it is known that people on YouTube are mostly cyber bullied at 79 percent, whereas on Snapchat its rate stands at 69 percent followed by TikTok at 64 percent, Facebook at 49 percent and it is also quite high in Whatsapp groups. Among all, children at age of 9 to 10 are cyber bullied on several online gaming spots and people at ages between 13 to 16 are victims of cyber harassment on other social media apps.
