Cyberbullies are people who use the internet as means of harming others. It can often get really hostile. It is most commonly done by adolescents and younger adults. In most states, they have laws against cyberbullying. One typical example of cyberbullying is Happy Slapping in which a person is physically attacked and the incident is then filmed on a mobile phone. This part is not considered cyberbullying, but when the attack is uploaded onto the internet to expose the victims to ridiculement, this action is considered cyberbullying and thus poses a threat to the victim.
