teasing, name calling, taunting
with the intent to cause harm to others (Stop Bullying, Bullying Definition, n.d.).
Verbal Bullying
Social bullying involves "
spreading rumors
about someone",

in the presence of others and/or "
telling other children not to be friend with someone
" (Stop Bullying, Bullying Definition, n.d.).
Physical Bullying
is just like bullying, but
serves as a mediator. Cyberbullying is a type of bullying that has expanded considerably. Technology has positively impacted educations, but it has created a new medium for cyberbullies and their victims.

According to the Student Code of Behavior, "Cyberbullying means
bullying through the use of technology or any electronic communication
, which includes, but is not limited to, any transfer of signs, signals, writing, images, sounds, data ...... including, but not limited to, electronic mail, Internet communications, instant messages, or facsimile communications" (M-DCPS, 2015).
Physical bullying involves
pushing, tripping, spitting, hitting, takin
breaking someone belongings
(Stop Bullying, Bullying Definition, n.d.).

Bullying happens everywhere and anytime and
social media
is not the exception.
