Idon’t know what to do, almost autism”. In the world, there was not few caseabout online bullying not only superstar but also everyone especial young peopleleading to serious consequences even suicide or depression. There are two main typesof cyber-bullying consisting of directattack and cyber-bullyingby proxy. A direct attack is a message or statement which is sent directly to cyber-victims. Cyber-bullying throughproxy is when the “bully” getsor hiressomeone to do the filthy work for them.

Most often they are illegal and don’t know they are being used by the “bully”. Cyber-bullyingby proxy is considerably the most hazardous kindof cyber-bullying. 2.2. Possiblecauses of cyber-bullying            One of the first and foremost causes of cyber-bullying is power. Thereason why people like bullying other people on internet is because of gettingpower and wanting more attention.

They think that they will become famous ifgetting their names out there so as to make them cool and get noticed fromsomeone, according to Stellar bully project (2011). In thisinstance, cyberbulliers want to show other people how powerful they are. Theywant victims to be frightened of them and have control over them. However,cyber-bullying is also carried out by people who feeling powerless. People who lack thephysical power to traditionally bully others can use accessible technologies.Cyber-bullying can follow victims everywhere via cell phones, computers orsmart devices (Skaine, 2015).

             Inaddition, the second cause given by No bullying (2015) is amusement, thesepeople think that embarrassing others is funny. This groupof people has so much leisure time. Therefore, they use the internet to tormentothers for their entertainment. They find it really interesting and pleasure whencyber-victims cope with public opinion and whatthey create, and even they do it to get a laugh from their peers.

Itmakes the issue worse because people can do everything without identification,so they can feel free to attack others without knowing who they are. Besides,they would not think of themselves as bullies. They think that all they aredoing is teasing a bit because it is unlike traditional bullying cases thatpeople can see the evident consequences, cyber-bullying normally cannot.           Thelast cause that people want to cyber-bullying is revenge. In many case, peoplewant to bully others because they are bullied by someone in real life.

Accordingto Gabriel, 2015), revenge motivated some individuals to do cyberbullying. Being victims of bullying in daily lives make them think that aggressionothers are only something that is natural as some people deserve to be bullied.People who have been bullied might decide to avenge himself/herself by takingto the internet and attacking the person that tormented him/her or sometimethey have decision to revenge for their friends (No bullying, 2015).2.3.
