High figures report being victims.

In a survey of over 1000 young people in Sweden, over 1 in three aged 10-16 claimed they have been victims of online bullying.  The figure increased to 54% for girls aged 13-16 who were victimised over their appearance.

Abuse was most likely to take place on Facebook or on chat applications.  Most victims knew the identity of those behind the abuse.
