This problem is mostly common between teenagers as they are not quite old enough to consider the consequence of this aggressive behavior. But in most cases cyber bullying occur with persons whom suffer from physiological and mental problems, and persons who lack education about the criminality of cyber bullying. Anger, hatred, jealousy, fun and the desire to impose a sense of power and control could be reasons behind cyber bullying.

Preventing Cyber Bullying
Rather than answering a message, block the cyber bully and refuse to respond. If the messages are not too serious and will not require intervention from an adult, school official, or law enforcement officer, delete the messages and try to forget about them. Cyber bullies want to see a reaction and feed off of a negative response. By not giving them that satisfaction, it is possible to prevent future bullying and keep from being their target.
Report the problem to a trustworthy adult, such as a parent, teacher, or principal. If the bullying is happening on a website, report the bully to the Internet service provider or the site's moderator.
