It is a testament to the endurance of human evil that throughout history good inventions are promptly put to bad use by evil people. Witness a perfectly fantastic invention like the train, used by the Nazis to transport people to their deaths.
Today, as we know the internet is used for nefarious sex trade purposes and spreading hateful ideas, etc. But there is more: kids at school now use their cellphones and internet to bully other kids.
Cyberbullying is even more cowardly than regular bullying, because at least in the second instance you have to make the effort to show up in person, whereas with cyberbullying you can hide behind the anonymity that technology affords. How despicable.
