Cyberstalking and Cyberbullying by Samuel C. McQuade, Nathan W. Fisk, Sarah E. Gentry

A cyberbully uses the internet or mobile computing devices to embarrass, intimidate, or harm another person. Cyberstalkers use technology to harass someone, violate their privacy, and sometimes make violent or sexual threats. Today, technology enables bullies and stalkers, once confined to the physical world, to reach their victims almost anywhere at almost anytime. Teenagers are often the targets of bullying and stalking, and in many cases the perpetrators are teens as well. Cyberstalking and Cyberbullying helps teens understand these issues and gives them the information they need to stay safe online.

Today the Internet and the World Wide Web are essential parts of everyone's education, work, and social life, but despite all the benefits they bring, they come with many dangers. Teens, who are often the leading users of cutting-edge technology, are especially vulnerable to these risks. Yet, many are often unaware of the predators and perils awaiting them online, The Cybersafety series is intended to help readers better understand the nature of the online pitfalls and dangerous behaviors. Staying safe in a fast-paced, technology driven world is more difficult than over, but the Cybersafety series gives readers the information they need to protect themselves.
