Cyberbullying Leading to Suicides

In this article, it explains that the people who have committed suicide was not just because of cyberbullying alone, but of face-to-face bullying as well. The article mentions that “78 per cent of the victims who committed suicide were bullied both at school and online — with only 17 per cent targeted on the internet only.” It also explains that the victims also had mood disorders and depression symptoms that led to the their suicide.
