Abstract
Data from 53 focus groups, which involved students from 10 to 18 years old, show that youngsters often interpret cyberbullying as Internet bullying and associate the phenomenon with a wide range of practices. In order to be considered true cyberbullying, these practices must meet several criteria. They should be intended to hurt (by the perpetrator) and perceived as hurtful (by the victim); be part of a repetitive pattern of negative offline or online actions; and be performed in a relationship characterized by a power imbalance (based on real-life power criteria, such as physical strength or age, and/or on ICT-related criteria such as technological know-how and anonymity).
