Why is cyberbullying such an issue these days?

The anonymity available on the internet can cause bullying to be more severe and harder to trace the source. People are often more hostile when they don’t have to face the consequences of their actions. Sadly, the reach of the internet and email makes it easier for mean behavior to spread more quickly to a wider audience and do more damage. Also, it’s easier for bullies to target their victims due to the vast amount of information available online.
