Many people don't think that cyberstalking results in serious outcomes
Mental and physical harm
As technology advances, it has become easier for the stalker to target his/her victim with complete anonymity

Cyberstalking is viewed as a crime of opportunity
The criminal justice system makes victims of this crime feel insignificant as if their unimportant in the eyes of the law.
People Indirectly Effected

Relative: the victim might retract and not want visit certain people or go places they once did
Friends: A once outgoing and carefree person may no longer feel safe going out in public, afriaf of who they might encounter
Colleagues: A victim might withdraw from the workplace, opting to work from home if given the option or switching employers altogether for fear that her offender could be in the workplace
