Since 2012, every third Friday in June has been Stop Cyberbullying Day, falling this year on June 16th. The annual event is coordinated by The Cybersmile Foundation to unite millions of people and promote a kind and inclusive internet. Cyberbullying is a specific type of bullying that occurs over digital devices through text messaging, apps, social media, forums, and online gaming communities, where people can view and share content. So, bullies usually send, post, or share negative, harmful, false, or mean content about someone else, causing embarrassment or humiliation. In the United States alone, 37% of youth aged 12 to 17 have been bullied online.
