Communication technologies offer young people unprecedented opportunities to communicate with others both in and out of their existing face-to-face social networks. A risk of such communication is that cyber bullying can take place in these media to threaten, harass, humiliate, exclude, or hurt reputations and friendships. This chapter includes a review of various components of cyber bullying definitions and of legal issues related to cyber bullying in the United States and Canada. The author’s finding of research in two urban School Boards is reviewed.

Keywords:   cyber bullying, social networks, threats, harassment, humiliation, exclusion
