According to Bullying Statistics, most teenagers (over 80 percent) now use a cell phone regularly, opening them up to new avenues for bullying. About half of young people have experienced some form of cyberbullying, and 10 to 20 % experience it regularly. Spreading rumors, sending mean messages and hurtful or threatening comments are the most common type of cyberbullying.

Cyberbullying can be very damaging to adolescents and teens. It can lead to anxiety, depression, and even suicide.

Telenor group reported that in a survey of parents and adults across Asia, 79% reported that either their child or a child that they know has been threatened with physical harm while playing online games specifically on websites or on social media.
