Adam, a member of the Webwise Youth Advisory Panel, made a short video that poses a question: whether those seen in the video are bullying each other or just having banter.

Cyberbullying is hard to define. It can be difficult to know when you are crossing the line between a bit of fun and hurting someone. This short video challenges young people to relect on this issue.

It’s for the audience to decide once they view the video whether it’s bullying or not.
