The word bully can go as far back as far as the 1530s. (Harper 2008). In which would be described as one physically or verbally attacking another person in order to gain a sense of power or superiority. One of the many blessings of the 20th century, the internet, has changed the name of bullying forever. Welcome, cyberbullying, as defined as a category of bullying that occurs in the digital realm/medium of electronic text (Wong-Lo & Bullock, 2011). This act of bullying can occur in many ways: cyberstalking, gossip groups, impersonation, cyber harassment, sexting, and much more (Notor 2013).

Another substantial effect of cyber bullying is depression. Loneliness, humiliation, and insecurity are all tied together with depression and are the most common initial emotional responses to the bullying process. An example of what depression looks like stemming from being bullied can be the fear of going to school for some students. The anxiety of knowing that at school you are not safe from being ridiculed makes is very difficult socially and emotionally for students to focus on their studies and develop in a healthy fashion (Ericson, 2001, pp. 1-2). Various types of cyberbullying cause depression. The most popular type of sexting.
