Many different forms of technology may be used to carry out cyberbullying. When cyberbullying is carried out through the use of mobile phones, it is known as mobile bullying. Kowalski et al. (2008) have defined mobile bullying as a form of cyberbullying through email, chatrooms, instant messaging and small text messages using mobile phones.
What is Mobile Victimisation
Mobile victimisation is in turn is the result of mobile bullying. Victimisation has often been studied as an act that stems from bullying. Coincidentally, similar definitions have been given for both victimisation and bullying. Meaning that those people who are bullied are victims of bullying as they would have been victimised through the process of bullying. As a result, victimisation can be said to be a result of the activity of bullying.
It has been found that the experience of school and electronic victimisation is associated with loneliness, peer rejection, lower self-esteem and self-efﬁcacy, higher stress, anxiety, and depressive symptoms which at times are found to be at high levels among youthful populations. Victimisation is often unpredictable, unpreventable and unexpected. It frightens and unsettles victims, leaving them confused, frustrated, fearful and angry. In some case, especially among adolescents, cyberbullying (in general) has left victims feeling helpless, vulnerable and subsequently suicidal. According to Hinduja and Patchin (2010), there exists a relationship between bullying and suicide and they found that cyberbullying is related to high suicidal ideation among youth. As a result, victims of cyberbullying are more likely to consider suicide due to the negative impacts of bullying (Collins, 2012; North Shore-Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Health System, 2015).
