A new survey conducted by Telenor shows that two out of three Norwegian kids have experienced digital bullying or teasing within their social circle. Yesterday marked the start of the fifth season of the "Use your head" campaign; Norway's biggest campaign against digital bullying.
The survey shows that 66 percent of children between the age of 10 to 15 have experienced digital bullying or teasing within their social circle, either on the Internet or via mobile phones. 14 percent says it's is normal to experience digital bullying.
"Every single day thousands of Norwegian children are being bullied via mobile phones or the Internet. This is unacceptable. The fight against digital bullying is a huge challenge that we have to take seriously and try to do something about," says Ragnar Kårhus, head of Telenor Norway.
