Digital technology has provided many benefits for young people. However, some of these benefits are offset against potential risk factors. For example, digital technology can be used as a mechanism to direct aggression towards another person and this may take the form of cyber bullying. This chapter will review some of the current debates surrounding which behaviours constitute cyber bullying. The chapter will also discuss the various forms of cyber bullying and some of the motives for engaging in such behaviours. Finally, the chapter will provide some recommendations for researchers undertaking studies in the area of cyber bullying.
