Adolescent cyberbullying continues to be a global public health concern, which has garnered the attention of scholars around the world. Cyberbullying is concerning for adolescents as adolescents have increasingly relied on social media, which increases their risk of cyberbullying victimization. This article aims to review the existing research literature on cyberbullying. The article focuses specifically on the definition and conceptualization of cyberbullying, the prevalence of cyberbullying around the world (Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, Central/Latin America, and Africa), and how cyberbullying has been addressed in Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, Central/Latin America, and Africa. The article then discusses solutions and recommendations for practice and policy and future research directions.
