Abstract

To further explore how close relationships might affect subsequent cyberbullying behaviors, the present study examines direct and indirect experiences with cyberbullying and how associated emotional pain levels related to cyberbullying experience influence subsequent cyberbullying behavior and attitude. A sample of 338 participants, aged 18 to 78, was examined. Past social media behaviors, experiences, and associated emotional pain were measured. Findings suggest that emotional pain associated with direct victimization and indirect victimization of witnessing cyberbullying affect subsequent cyberbullying behaviors.
