Study shows 59% of US teens experience online bullying or harassment

Pew lead researcher Monica Anderson said: “Name-calling and rumor-spreading have long been an unpleasant and challenging aspect of adolescent life. But the proliferation of smartphones and the rise of social media has transformed where, when and how bullying takes place.”

Meanwhile, a majority of teens feel that parents are doing a better job in addressing online harassment than teachers, social media firms and politicians.
