7 Bullying Bullying A bully says something nasty and its only heard when he/she says it. The bully makes him/herself known to the victim. The primary bully is usually physically stronger. Bullies are usually limited to attacking at certain hours of the day. Often bullies attack face-to- face. In most physical bullying attacks, there are relatively few witnesses. Cyberbullying A cyberbully can say something damaging online and it may be accessed practically forever. Often times the bully can be anonymous. Physical stature of the bully is not relevant. Cyberbullying can be done 24/7. Cyberbullying is never face- to-face. Witnesses of cyberbullying can be within the school, country or even world-wide.
