Study: Parents Views Differ On Definition Of Cyberbullying

ANN ARBOR (WWJ) - A new University of Michigan study finds that parents have a lot of different views on what the true definition of cyberbullying should be.

More than 60 percent feel a social media campaign to elect a student for homecoming court as a prank is cyberbullying.

Numbers were similar for posting online rumors that a student had sex at school.

But far fewer parents--less than half--felt that targeting a student with online rumors of cheating or altered photos amounted to online bullying.
