The Internet has made it easier than ever for people to connect, but their interactions are not always friendly. Any perceived fault can cause someone to be attacked by a cyber mob—a group of people intent on humiliating someone online. Relatable text addresses this relatively new phenomenon, giving readers information about the rise of cyber mobs, the social and psychological effects on their victims, and ways to combat them. Engaging sidebars provide examples of cyber mob attacks, and a list of resources is provided for anyone who may be experiencing online bullying.
