Characteristics of harassers

According to teens who admit being a cyberbully or Internet harasser:

- The results are mixed. In general, boys and girls appear to be equally likely to harass others online. In the Youth Internet Safety Survey -2, boys were more likely than girls to harass others a lot (frequently). On the other hand, boys and girls were equally likely to harass others a lot or just once or twice in the Growing up with Media survey.
- In general, harassers are more likely also to report being aggressive and to break the rules often.
- Teens who harass others a lot (frequently) also report depressed or withdrawn behavior twice as often as teens who don’t harass others online.

According to teens who have been harassed:

- Their harasser tends to be older teens (like 13-17 instead of 10-12).
- About half of online harassers and bullies are male, about 30% are female, and about 20% aren’t known to the teen who is being bullied
- About half of the time, the teen knows their harasser in the offline world. The rest of the time, the teen knows the harasser only in the online world. Sometimes, but not often, teens are harassed by people they don’t know online or offline before the incident.
