Secondly, cyber bullying can happen to make a person feel powerful. This happens to people who are usually weaker or smaller than usual. When they are on the internet they have nothing to fear of since it is indirectly bullying. Statistics show that people who cyber bully other people are mostly weak or bullied inside of school.

For example, Tina in grade 11 acts differently from when she is at school and on the internet. She would be swearing and giving a different attitude from when she is at school.
To conclude, cyber bullying happens because of the weakness people have in the world. The reasons to why cyber bullying happens can include revenging other people. Secondly it can be done to gain power over others. Lastly it can be done to entertain one’s self.
