Abstract The Internet has developed into a global social network and reflects many of the world wide social problems that society in general faces. This paper examines a number of cases where physical social and ethical situations have transferred into the technology mediated communication domains. The paper will investigate the complexity around these issues. This paper will examines the new form of bullying that is being played out weekly in the media, that of cyber bulling, specifically on social networking sites. The traditional and direct forms of bullying are being replaced by consistent abuse via social networking due to the ease and accessibility of these new forms of communications.
