Abstract
The lack of a well-accepted definition of cyberbullying has become a serious issue for the field of research. I surveyed 545 students, parents, and teachers to determine how they described bullies and cyberbullies and whether they applied academic definitional criteria to their concepts of traditional bullying and cyberbullying. Data were analysed using analysis of variance, principal components analysis, and thematic analysis. Taken together, the findings indicated that participants (a) generally describe bullies and cyberbullies similarly, and (b) endorse academic definitional criteria to their personal notion of a bully and a cyberbully. These findings support using Olweus' definition criteria to create a unified definition of cyberbullying that reflects the views of those who most often experience cyberbullying.
