Abstract
One of the recent transformative shifts in society that has taken the world by storm is the rise of internet culture, fundamentally altering the mindset of our populace. This shift is often termed as technological determinism. As an increasing number of teenagers engage with social networking platforms, a concerning phenomenon known as cyberbullying has emerged. Cyberbullying entails the use of the internet as a medium to post derogatory and harmful comments about individuals, significantly impacting their personal and social reputation. The repercussions of such bullying are challenging to endure, especially when critical remarks are publicly accessible, leading to a severe dent in the individual's standing within society. In the current landscape of our educational institutions, cyberbullying has morphed into a pervasive issue that detrimentally affects students' overall well-being and academic performance. This form of social criticism can inflict lasting harm on an individual. It has the potential to destabilize an individual's mental equilibrium, profoundly altering their personality and self-confidence. Cyberbullying victims often grapple with anxiety, fear, depression, diminished academic achievements, and in some cases, even dropout from school. These distressing experiences result in a loss of self-esteem, leaving them overwhelmed, vulnerable, and seeking revenge, feeling exposed, humiliated, and socially isolated. Their attitudes towards school turns negative, often leading to disinterest in education and life in general. This paper delves into the multifaceted aspects of cyberbullying within schools, delving into its prevalence, various manifestations, effects, root causes, and potential remedies. It aims to equip educators, parents, and policymakers with a comprehensive understanding of cyberbullying. By drawing upon a diverse array of research findings and expert perspectives, this paper seeks to provide insights into combating this problem effectively, offering valuable approaches to address cyberbullying issues and mitigate its detrimental impacts.
