Dibbel then brought up how one of the rape victims spoke out about her experience and to apply the pathos appeal. This victim wished the worst for Mr. Bungle, the raper, and her feelings were justified to the reader because Dibbel goes on to explain that she is an actual rape victim in real life. Claiming that there were “posttraumatic tears were streaming down her face,” the reader could then see that an online rape still had an emotional effect on a person, even if it only happened through text commands. Dibbel then concludes his article with value
The attempt at suicide almost doubles for victims of cyberbullying than their non-cyberbullied counterparts (Hinduja & Patchin, 2010). Let’s take a look at the definitions of bully, cyberbully, victim, and bystander(s), because I believe a cyberbully evolved from a face-to-face bully. Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance and is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time (“Bullying Definition,” n.d., para. 1). A cyberbully is someone who bullies using electronic devices such as computers, tablets, and cell phones (“What is Cyberbullying”, n.d., para 1).
They could spread lies and rumors about victims, trick people into revealing personal information, send or forward mean text messages, and post pictures of victims without their consent. Is bullying the same as cyberbullying? What makes them different? While bullying occurs as a face-to-face confrontation, cyberbullying occurs online and involves the use of technologies. Cyberbullying can be even more vicious than bullying since cyberbullying can occur repeatedly in front of a massive online audience, with the cyberbullyâ€™s identity unknown, while the victim feels helpless because the attacks can come from several different online sources day in and day out.
Summary In the article “Perceptions of adolescent bullying: Attributions of blame and responsibilities in cases of cyber bulling” written by Morrow and Downey (2013) it explains what cyber bullying is and how it affects our society.

Later in my article I will explain how internet base, mobile phones and tablets based bulling may be largely contributing to youth suicide along with complex legal problems. Cyber bulling has been defined as intention aggression using an electronic medium and as the use of information and communication technologies to intentionally harm others (2013)” defines Morrow.
Every story you hear, every example you read, and every statistic there is, shows how cruel cyber bullying is and why it should be stopped. Last but not least, cyber bullying is present because some people think it will help bolster or remind individuals of bully’s own social standings. What does that even mean? Own social standings? Really?
Experts have concluded that cyber-bullying can cause damage that is more psychological to people than the ordinary type of bullying, due to the incoming text messages and the feeling of being unable to escape from the online world. Cyber-bullying consists of hate emails, humiliating images threatened to be put up online for the whole world to see and a numerous amount of threatening text messages. Co-ordinator Sue Steel of the Anti-Bullying Alliance said that it infiltrates the home, taking away children’s safe spaces, and by taking away children’s safe spaces, it can have real life consequences for the younger generation. An incident back in 2009 highlighted the consequences of cyber-bullying, when, the 15-year-old girl, Holly Grogan jumped from a road bridge after a torrent of abuse on her Facebook page. According to Dr. Karen Douglas, the online world can be a very powerful tool to get the message out.
There are numerous ways that a cyberbullies can torment their victims; here are just a few. Sending tweets, emails, instant messages, or text messages that are harmful to a victim. Placing embarrassing stuff or revealing personal information about the victim on a website. The cyberbully may have started out as teasing and is escalated into relentless torment of a victim. With the social media sites of today it has become very easy for a cyberbully to torment a victim.

If individuals such as Logan decide to make a living through the use of social media, then they should take into the account as to how their video influence the behavior of their viewers. In the video Logan made jokes regarding the situation, teaching children to be rude and disrespectful towards others and what they may be going through. Technology expert Richard Watson claims, “[w]e think [cell phones] are connecting us, but they are turning us into a society of rude, impatient, narrow minded, stressed out, aggressive, and isolated individuals” (Abramovitz 7).
