Cyberbullying can be considered a crime

Go back in time 50 years and there was no such thing as cyberbullying. This was well before the days of the Internet, smartphones, tablets, and many other types of technology.

In today's world, however, cyberbullying is a problem that has grown out of control. For this reason, some states have implemented cyberbullying laws in an attempt to curb this behavior once and for all. At this time, approximately 50 percent of U.S. states have some type of cyberbullying language in their bullying laws.

Since cyberbullying laws are still in their infancy, it can be hard to pinpoint the penalties associated with this. It all comes down to the state in which the cyberbullying takes place, as well as any applicable laws. Penalties can range from anything from a school suspension to civil penalties to criminal misdemeanors and felonies.

With cyberbullying laws evolving with each passing day, it is important for everybody to understand the stance being taken by their state.
