Abstract: Nowadays, the constant development of information and communication technologies (ICTs) has changed the interpersonal interaction, allowing to transfer real experiences to a virtualized medium such as the Internet. In this sense, although the space-time barriers of traditional communication are broken and social relationships are strengthened, problems related to adverse behaviors may arise. Bullying, defined as an act that threatens a person’s holistic well-being, becomes cyberbullying when it is done over Internet, causing anxiety problems, depression, and even suicide attempts. For this reason, it is essential to detect this type of behaviour in time. This research deploys a Spanish cyberbullying prevention system (SPC), which relies on Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods and different machine learning techniques (Naive Bayes, Support Vector Machine and Logistic Regression), using Twitter as the basis for the extraction of knowledge bases or corpus. Several precision metrics and variable corpus sizes are used for the training. The learning results reach a maximum accuracy of 93%, verified through the application of three study cases.

Title: Cyberbullying Among Chilean Students and the Protective Effects of Positive School Communities

Journal: Journal of School Violence

URL: https://doi.org/10.1080/15388220.2017.1358640

Abstract: Cyberbullying is a type of bullying that involves the use of technology to harm other students. Most researchers have examined individual-level characteristics, but the perception of school climate and school characteristics such as type, size, and level of vulnerabilities have not been considered using multilevel methods. Using a sample of 8,237 Chilean seventh graders from 1,322 schools we examined individual- and school-level predictors of cyberbullying perpetration. Cyberbullying perpetration was predicted by prior victimization, interpersonal relationships, and gender. We found an interaction effect between interpersonal relationships and teacher support for victims. Our findings support the notion that school policies and culture can play a vital role in the prevention of cyberbullying, supporting a protective resilience model.
