New Article on Cyberbullying

Social media has not only changed the way we communicate, but it has spawned an entire new vocabulary.  For example, "tweeting" is not just the sound birds make and "friends" don't always mean people you have personally met.   Cyberbullying is another example of a term that probably was not used just a short decade ago, but has been receiving a lot of media attention recently.
In a new article, Bullying on Facebook: How It Affects Secondary School and College Students, students at Tarleton State University investigate how cyberbullying via Facebook affects students transitioning from high school to college by looking at how bullying emerges from interpersonal communication on social networking websites.  The authors concluded that most students had either experienced or witnessed cyberbullying, and that cyberbullying does affect academic performance in some shape or form.
