Abstract:Today many adolescents have access to computers and mobile phones. They prefer to socialize through these means which has led to a new kind of bullying, the electronic bullying. The purpose of this study has been to examine the electronic bullying from the perspective of gender, anonymity and the consequences that it may lead to. We have chosen a quantitative approach by using a questionnaire survey targeting young people between the ages of 15-16 years in Kalmar county. 163 respondents took part in the survey, 78 girls and 85 boys. The gathered material is presented by means of contingency tables and has been interpreted by gender socialization, deindividuation and dehumanization. The results show that 14 % of the respondents have been victims of electronic bullying. The results also show that 15% of the respondents have participated in exposing others to electronic bullying.
