We found that cyberbullying was a growing trend within the sphere of bullying and we were naturally inclined to investigate further.
We found that 69% of young people had experienced cyberbullying and that 20% of those said it had been very extreme.
We asked people to rate the impact cyberbullying had on their lives on a scale of one to 10, with one being not severe and 10 being incredibly severe.
On average, the effect on their self-esteem was 7.5 out of 10, which can go on to affect their social lives and their optimism for the future. It's having a massive impact on young people.
