The purpose of this study was to research and evaluate the trends in cyber-bullying as it relates to age. Researchers gathered the findings by posting a link to a survey on multiple social media platforms. Researchers posted the link and had adults aged 18 years and over answer a series of questions that related to our research topic. Through these surveys, researchers were able to ask a large amount of people to anonymously answer questions that helped us determine their specific thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding the topic. By completing this research, a correlation between age and cyber-bullying was identified and researchers were able to gain a deeper understanding of the issue as a whole. The study showed that there is a relationship between age and those who experience being cyber-bullied. Those who experienced cyber-bullying did so between the ages of 10 and 17 years old.
