53 percent Indian children bullied online: Survey


A survey commissioned by Microsoft shows cyberbullying is troubling a more than half of children around the world. India ranks third among countries having their children bullied online.

According to Microsoft's Global Youth Online Behavior Survey, 53 percent of Indian children aged between 8-17 acknowledged being bullied online, just behind China (70 percent) and Singapore (58 percent).

According to Wikipedia, Cyberbullying is defined as use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass or target another person.

In the survey, kids were asked whether somebody had been unfriendly or mean toward then on the internet or if any other kid had made fun or teased them. In India, the survey says, more than five in 10 children surveyed confessed of being subjected to a range of online activities which some considered to be online bullying.
