Abstract

ABSTRACT

Today, technology is an indispensable element of our lives. Technology makes our lives easier by using

useful points. Apart from this, it is seen that some people use technology to go beyond the purpose of

benefit. Cyber bullying is one of the examples of this abuse. Cyber bullying is a deliberate psychological,

social, verbal or visual aggressive behaviour towards a person or group that does not have the power to

defend themselves over a period of time or continuously using electronic communication tools such as

mobile phones. The aim of this study is to learn whether people have information about cyber bullying

and their views on whether the attitudes they are exposed to are cyber bullying and to raise awareness

on this issue. This research involves students studying at the Karadeniz Technical University answering

the questionnaire and interview questions, taking into account their personal experiences about cyber

bullying or the experiences of their immediate surroundings. In this research, survey was applied to 250

students and 30 students of them were interviewed. As a result of this research, it is seen that women

are more victims of cyber bullying than men. In addition, it is observed that the duration of internet use

is quite high and they use the internet mostly for night and entertainment purposes. It is observed that

people who share the passwords of their social media accounts with their boy/girlfriend also experience

cyber bullying more. People who have been subjected to cyberbullying may experience psychological

depression. This situation completely affects their daily social life and health at the end.

Keywords: Cyber Bullying, Cyber Victimization, Awareness, University Students.
