Abstract

Users on the social media can share positive as well as negative information intentionally and unintentionally in the form of multimedia content without knowing its impact on other user, which threatens the security and privacy of social media. Cyberbullying is one of the risks associated with social media. Cyberbullying is an aggressive act carried out intentionally against the victim by posting harmful material on social media to harm his/her reputation. Aggressive act creates depression, anxiety in users which may lead to diversion of attention and sometimes suicidal actions. In this paper the authors have included a survey on recent algorithms which work on detection of cyberbullying. State-of-the-art studies only focus on the detection of cyberbullying but not on the preventive measures against cyberbullying. In order to tackle this problem, the authors showed how the severity of the bullying in messages helps to find the real culprit.
