Alternatively called a cyberstalker, a cyberbully is someone who posts inappropriate things about another person or otherwise harasses them in e-mails, IMs (instant messages), or SMS (short message service).

A cyberbully may try to ruin another person's reputation by posting false information or posting information the other person doesn't want others to know. Online social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, are common places for a cyberbully to harass other people.

It is not uncommon for a cyberbully to post information or comments using a fake name or account to hide their identity.
