If anything needs to be done the honest way, it can only be done anonymously. Anonymity is the biggest contribution of the internet. When you are online, you can mask who you really are and do things that you want to do, without any repercussions. While anonymous feedback is honest and helps people grow professionally, personally, and socially, it can also lead to cyberbullying.
Bullying has existed for millions of years and can be traced back to the 1500s. In the early days, a bully used to gain an upper hand over the bullied party using offensive and disturbing practices, destroying the victimized party physically and psychologically. Usually, bullying took place face-to-face and or on the walls of bathroom cubicles. Even though the victim could easily figure out the perpetrator, till the advent of the internet, these crudely written messages continued to survive and haunt.
With the advancement in technology, what used to happen face-to-face, is now happening in the digital realm. Anyone can taunt someone in their bedroom via a Smartphone while relaxing on a vacation several thousand miles away.
Between the ages of 12 and 17, about 40% of children have been cyberbullied. Of the 95% of students in the U.S who are online, 23% of teens admitted that they have intentionally said something harsh to offend another person online. A third of teens have confessed to having experienced cyberbullying from someone else too.
