Abstract: Cyber bullying, a form of bullying that uses electronic media, is a globally emerging phenomenon. The gap between the advancement of electronic devices and dearth of empirical evidence of study between developed and under developed countries suggests that more research is needed to understand this phenomenon. The purpose of this study was to examine cyber bullying experience among Filipino Visayan adolescents in the Philippines. It was a one-time cross-sectional design. There were 579 participants between the ages of 11 and 17 years of age who had prior and/or were currently taking computer classes at the time of the study. Participants were given a 38 item survey to identify demographic information as well as ask about their cyber bullying experiences. Two research questions were addressed using descriptive statistics and Chi-square tests. Results of the study identified a number of specific student and environmental variables important to the understanding of the phenomenon of cyber bullying within the specific community under study in the Philippines. The findings of this study will hopefully assist educators, administrators, and students to more effectively address problems caused by cyber bullying among adolescents.
