Cyber bullying is more common among females with 52 percent stating that they have experienced some form of this harassment, while only 37 percent of men said the same. The survey also reported that cyber bullying is occurring most among high school students. According to the study, 46 percent of high school teens have experienced cyber bullying, while only 35 percent of middle school students have experienced a form of cyber bullying (Horn 2010).
