Abstract

If Li's assumption (2007) that the new phenomenon of cyberbullying is nothing else but "old wine in new old bottles" is true, cyberbullies (and cybervictims) will also be traditional bullies (and victims). Further aims of this study were to measure the prevalence of (cyber-bullying and to investigate the similarities and differences between both forms of bullying. An online-survey utilised the CAPI method with a sample of 838 students (11-17 years) who participated in whole classes. The data suggests that Li (2007) is right in principle, but there are also some important differences to traditional bullying: (1) cyberbullying seems to "level" the differences between gender; (2) cybervictims seem to be more ready to "strike back".
