Secondly, as scientist George Cooley’s and Ervin Goffman’s theories would suggest, bullies enact roles in an effort to present themselves in a particular way to their peers, not caring what the cost is on their victim’s social life. Caused by consequence unawareness and the desire to fulfill a role, cyber bullying has become a widespread problem among young generations that can only be solved through public education on the consequences of bullying, and through the creation of a non-bullying culture for youth to follow.

Cyber bullies tend to think that they will get away with their crime without any consequences and “81% of youth agree that bullying online is easier to get away with than bullying in person” .

There are many effects on victims because of cyber bullying such as depression, harm to self, friendship lose, and sometimes harm to other people. “While some observers urge schools to become more involved in the growing problem, noting that extensive cyber bullying can lead to feelings such as despair in victims that they can be promoted to take their own life, as has already occurred, other experts balk at the idea of schools attempting to control what students say online and off of the campus” (“School administrators hesitate to punish cyber bullyin... ... middle of paper ... ...ople are not using social networks responsible and do not see what is wrong with bashing someone over the computer screen.
