Cyber bullying is the harassment or bullying executed through digital devices like computers, laptops, smart phones, and tablets. The platforms where cyber bullying can occur include social media, chat rooms, and gaming platforms where people can view and participate in the sharing of content. The diverse types of cyber bullying involve causing humiliation through hateful comments on online platforms/apps, or through SMS or messaging. It comprises posting, sending, or sharing negative, nasty, or false information about another individual for causing humiliation and character assassination. With increasing availability of affordable data services and social media presence, cyber bullying in India has witnessed an alarming rise. According to research conducted by Symantec, 8 out of 10 individuals are subject to the diverse types of cyber bullying in India. Out of these around 63% faced online abuses and insults, and 59% were subject to false rumors and gossips for degrading their image. In this paper, I will be discussing about the diverse types of cyber-bullying and its effects on the current generation, which will also include the anti-cyber bullying measures taken in India.
