Cyber bullying is another issue arises from the wrong usage of the Internet. The actual definition is harassing, bullying, and harming someone on purpose, via the Internet is called cyber bullying. Researchers have deducted that suicide is connected with cyber bullying. Nowadays many adolescents tend to suicide due to cyber bullying. Girls are usually criticized on their looks whereas boys are generally mocked through sexual comments. The suicides are caused due to “peer victimization”. As the information found on the internet is usually saved by many users, the guilt and embarrassment of the victim thus increases, leading to suicide. Parents need to be more aware of this endangering social issue; children are not likely to confess the problem so parents have to communicate to their children. Blocking the bully’s idea and reporting inappropriate information is a step to stop this monstrosity.
