Teens More Likely to Become Victims of Online Harassments

A recent survey identifies teen’s online behavior associated with online interpersonal victimization. Teens who talk to strangers online are more likely to become// victims of online harassment than those who share their personal information on the Internet.

Participants' average age was 14.2, about half were female and 76.2 percent identified themselves as white. Most came from well-educated households with a high annual income.

The researchers examined the frequency of nine online behaviors believed to increase the odds of online victimization including posting personal information online, sending personal information online, harassing or embarrassing someone, making rude or nasty comments, meeting someone online, having people known only online on their buddy list, talking about sex with someone known only online, purposely visiting an X-rated Web site and downloading images from a file-sharing program.
