Cyberbullying Vs Traditional (Physical) bullying

Is cyberbullying more harmful than traditional bullying?

Nick Betleski's insight:

Cyberbullying has recently been an issue with young adults and little kids nowadays. Does cyberbullying compare to traditional (physical) bullying that has been around longer? With new technology surfacing our society, bullies might have found a better way for them to harass a victim more secretively and more quickly. Researchers nowadays focus on who is getting more harm done to themselves through cyberbullying or traditional bullying.

Traditional (Physical) bullying has been around since the dawn of time, everyone understands it and most likely has gone through it once in their life. With traditional bullying, the victim can be humiliated in a public setting, teased, and cannot escape emotional distress. In certain cases, this kind of bullying can lead to physical violence by the bully hurting the victim. Most of this bullying takes place in schools and is mostly affected by middle schoolers to high schoolers. Traditional bullying can be escaped by informing police, parents, or school teachers right away and the bully will receive consequences immediately.

Cyberbullying is a new type of bullying that has been brought upon through social media sites and hasn't been around for very long. A bully attacks a victim through electronically devices, such as computers, video games, and phones. I was unaware that cell phones can be considered cyberbullying, but considering that cell phones are not electronically and no one uses land lines anymore in makes sense. Cyberbullying can be done in a few ways, with a group of bullies or a single bully and anonymously or known user. This kind of bullying usually has one victim and is harder for others to defend the victim as it is more directly toward the person. Typically, with cyberbullying parents or any other outside source is unaware of the occurrence and is sometimes harder to track the bully through the internet. This means, the bullying can keep continuing specially since information is easier to find on the web. Unlike traditional bullying, cyberbullying is quicker and more aggressive which can cause leaks of fake information to spread throughout the internet. 

To compare cyberbullying and traditional bullying, they both still take advantage of the victim whether or not they are visible or not. But studies show that more bullying is physical rather than through the internet. More men are the victim of traditional bullying while, women are the main victim toward cyberbullying which the bully is a mostly a man. 

There are common laws for obsessed physical bullying, but not many are aware of the laws that associate with cyberbullying. Since it is still quite new, laws go from leans in classroom or assemblies with parents to misdemeanors like the law in Idaho. Cyberbullying laws only came about in the start of 2005 and every state as a cyberbullying law, in the future I see it to become more of a stricter law.

Cyberbullying is fairly new and not much studies has been done to make this a more serious issue. From what I gathered, traditional bullying is shorter but more painful, while cyberbullying is longer term and less stressful. To prevent cyberbullying, privacy settings most be looked upon and a remember that everything is public on the internet no matter what. I feel cyberbullying alone is less harmful than traditional bulling because there are ways to escape the cyberbully to an extent, where as traditional bullying is face to face. If traditional bullying turned into cyberbullying then this is a far more worse issue than traditional bullying itself. All in all, one most make sure not to be confronted by a cyberbully, by doing so personal information should not be shared by the victim and privacy settings need to be secure.
