Dehue, Bolman, and Völlink (2008) argue that anonymity in cyberbullying can be linked to the social identity model of deindividuation. Specifically, because the target and their reactions to the cyberbullying episode remain anonymous to the perpetrator, the perpetrator can disengage from the potential distress that they are causing and, as such, continue their behaviour. Therefore, the target of the cyberbullying is not regarded as an individual with common humanity but rather the perpetrator is able to down play the targets’ feelings which, in the perpetrators’ mind, would facilitate a sense of legitimacy for their actions.
