The victims of Cyberbullying require the full cooperation of the social networks, NGO's, young people, educators and society as a whole.

The organization surveyed over 10,000 British teens to measure their experiences with cyberbullying. Twitter (9%) and Tumblr (3%) were at the bottom.

According to the survey, 42 percent reported being bullied on Instagram, 37 percent on Facebook and 31 percent on Snapchat.

Part 2 focused on cyberbullying and the impact technology is having on the lives of young people. With over half of respondents saying they have been bullied at some point.

Instagram has overtaken Facebook as the website perceived to be the worst for cyber bullying.

. However, if researches are to be believed, one platform can actually be worse than others in terms of bullying. A 2014 Cox Communications study on online safety - which surveyed 1,301 teens from 13-17 years old - said 39% of teens witnessed bullying on Facebook.

When it comes to the United States, online harassment and bullying has been studied by Pew Research, and although they did not pinpoint a social media network in their July 2017 report, and used a slightly larger age range (18-29), in their survey of 4,248 US adults, it found that 41% of Americans have been subjected to online harassment and bullying, and 66% has witnessed these behaviors directed at others. Instagram and Twitter were lowest at 22%.

Online bullying activities include sending screenshots/pictures of someone to others in a group chat in order to laugh at them, trolling others in a game, liking or sharing a post that mocks others or sending nasty messages to someone.

The anti-bullying charity found that the the biggest impact bullying (online or offline) had on young people was social anxiety.

Based on a much larger sample size (over 120,000), researchers found while 30 percent reported regular bullying, only three percent said it happened both off and online.
