According to Hinduja and Patchin (2011), romantic partners can cause harm to one another, including cyberbullying, in many different ways. Where traditional forms of dating violence include physical, psychological, and sexual, modern technology such as text messaging, emailing, and social media has enabled teens to employ new techniques of dating violence. Although the prevalence of digital dating violence varies by study, it is none-the-less a significant source of violence among adolescents. For that reason, many researchers promote programs to inform youth of the dangers of technology and teach them healthy communication skills.
