One-in-five young people has been cyberbullied, according to a research across 11 countries.

A fifth say they felt suicidal as a result.

The survey also found that more than half of the 5,000 teenagers who took part thought being targeted online was worse than face-to-face bullying.


Vodafone and YouGov carried out the poll in countries including the UK, Spain, New Zealand and Ireland.

What it found among the victims

Forty-one per cent said online abuse left them feeling depressed or helpless.

A quarter had closed down their social media accounts, with almost 40% saying they couldn't tell their parents, because of feeling scared or worry that they might get involved.

Around 40% said they would find it hard to support a friend being been bullied, but seven out of 10 would "be likely to use an emoji to express compassion or support".

Newsbeat recently brought you a series of reports looking at teenage suicide after the death of 14-year-old Izzy Dix.

"I experienced suicidal thoughts as a young person and it was a massive relief to finally speak up," wrote Rachel.

"Online bullying has become so much more embedded," said Charlotte.

If this is sounding familiar to you you can get more on these BBC Advice pages.

The Department for Education is spending £7m on tackling cyber bullying and a spokesman said: "We have strengthened teachers' powers to tackle bullying by giving them the freedom to search for and delete inappropriate images from phones and other electronic devices.

"We have also made clear that teachers can discipline and investigate cases of bullying outside school."

The NSPCC has condemned videos being uploaded on the internet where youngsters are encouraged to name and shame friends they consider to be promiscuous or disloyal.

Some of the so-called 'baiting out' videos have received hundreds of thousands of views online and some of those producing the content are earning a decent wage.

Cassidy Valentine, 21, who was named in one of the videos, insists they are a form of cyberbullying.

She told Sky News: "I was pretty embarrassed. I was more shocked than anything.

"I was worried about whether I would receive hate and people wouldn't like me."

The videos are being made primarily in London, but also in Telford and Birmingham.

Following complaints, police in the Midlands are now investigating.

Sky News has seen one video filled with expletives and sexual content that was made by children in school uniform, who look no older than 13.

Alan Wardle, from the NSPCC, said: "The children in these videos are teenagers, many of whom are worrying about their own development and their own sexuality ... and for this material to be on the internet, and for people they don't even know to see it, is deeply distressing."


A survey published today by teachers' union NASUWT has found that 50% of teachers know of pupils who have used social media to share material of a sexual nature, and 25% know of students involved in 'sexting' who are just 11 years old.

There are a number of YouTubers making baiting out videos.

AlpayB is one of the main contributors. However, he's now decided to change his content as he no longer considers it appropriate.

Theo Ajiey, 23, is another video maker who encourages people to name disloyal friends.

He told Sky News: "I don't personally think the videos are bullying. They're just banter, a bit of fun.


"For example, in one of the videos, a guy baits out his own mother."

Following criticism some of the video makers have now removed their content.

YouTube has said in cases where graphic content is uploaded, it is careful to apply warnings and age restrictions to safeguard people using the site.
