Victims should be encouraged to report any form of online harassment as soon as it begins so that the perpetrators can be traced and held accountable. Not only are schools involved in laying down measures to prevent and reduce cyberbullying, but the community and the police also have a role too in cyberbullying prevention.

Revealing the inspirations for cyberbullying ought to advance a more in-depth understanding of this marvel and possibly diminish the relational violence that can result from it. By giving a structure that starts to explain the inward and outer components motivating the vice, there is upgraded potential to create effective preventive measures to forestall cyberbullying and its negative impacts.
