Teens driven to suicide by cyber bullying

Teenagers subjected to humiliation in front of thousands of internet users were also increasingly becoming the subject of death threats.

Threats and other internet bullying tactics were putting teenagers at greater risk of depression and anxiety than face-to-face bullying, experts said.
In the most serious circumstances, online bullying can end in long-term mental health issues and suicide, the NSW Youth Advisory Council said.

The size of the audience able to view or access the damaging material increases the humiliation, which is likely to increase the damaging impact.
