-Threats or intimidation through the use of any cellular mobile device, email or online media.
-Cyber stalking, is considered bullying when the perpetrator constantly contacts the victim with the intention to intimidate or upset them.
-The act of defamation.
-Cyber bullying with an intent to instigate self-harm or suicide (Sander Veenstra, 2009).
