As teenagers are now allowed smart phones and have access to social media sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter, there is now a larger pool for bullies to pick their victims. A lot of the time, the bullies are someone the victim knows. Often it is more than just one person online doing the bullying, which can make the victim feel overwhelmed. The victims are often targeted for simple meaningless flaws. These flaws can be anything, ranging from being overweight to being too nerdy or sometimes the victim is picked just because they are there.
Almost anyone in any household would have at least one social media account. It is impossible to imagine a life without a social media especially to the younger generation. Social media offers the most convenient platform for communication. However, more and more evidence of the detrimental aspect of such interaction emerges every single day.

Cyberbullying is actually a really big issue for kids and teens today. It is easier to get cyber bullied today and to cyber bully than it was about 10 years ago thanks to cell phones. Cell phones and smartphones can connect to the internet and to social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram where lots of cyberbullying takes place. This is one of the reasons why many parents do not allow their children to have a phone or even a social media account. These parents are afraid of the risks of giving their children access to a phone and/or a social media account.
Social networking also provokes cyberbullying and it spreads false information. Students go on social media too much and it results in them getting lower grades. They tend to not be focused on the task at hand and end up not getting their homework or whatever they’re working on completed. Also, some users bully others online and it affects the victim's life severely. Commenting something inappropriate could spread to many people's lives and could hurt lives in ways that people don’t know.
