According to EducationTechNews, cyber-mobbing is the latest online threat to be used by bullies and aggressors. Cyber-mobbing is inciting large groups of online users to target a single victim en masse – with the intention of causing irreperable harm to the victim, up to and including committing suicide.

"Cyber-mobbing is a terribly malicious tool which is employed by cyber-bullies to extend their reach and power over victims. "

"Cyber-mobbing participants often times do not even know the victim but participate for their own personal need to feel like they belong to something larger than themselves."

– Jerry Pinto, Founder of Safe Zones
