As per a survey done on 10,020 students in school and colleges between the age of 12 to 20, the results discovered that out of the 78 percent who use Instagram, 42 percent have been bullied. This is five percent higher than those bullied on Facebook (37 percent).
Also, studies reveal that image-based content is used more than online videos for bullying on cyberspace since even though 92 percent used YouTube, as against 78 percent on Instagram, most of the bullying happened via the latter medium. In Fact, only ten percent of the people surveyed used YouTube for cyberbullying.
Surveyed amongst people of multi-ethnicity, religious profiles, gender identities and age group with more than 20 percent swinging between the preteen and teen phase, at least 54 percent have bullied at some point in their life. It is, perhaps, unsurprising to notice that amongst the bullied, 74.7 percent are LGBT.
