Study: Why people don't intervene, stop cyberbullying

New research on cyberbullying explores when people are likely or unlikely to intervene and defend a cyberbullying victim.

University of Puget Sound assistant professor Nick Brody was the lead author of the study. The research found the higher the number of bystanders, the less likely an intervention will occur. The perception of anonymity on social media sites also made people less likely to take action.
