Cyber bullying is when a person is being bullied over any form of technology. It is the intent to make someone feel embarrassed, self conscious, or bad about themselves. Cyber bullying can include the following:

Intimidation or mean comments that focus on things like someones gender, religion, sexual orientation, race or disabilities fall into this category. In the U.S.A. online harassment is against the law in many states. That means law enforcement could get involved, and the bully or bullies could face serious consequences.
