Poll: More than half of teens, young adults harassed online

(CNN) -- More than half of all teens and young adults say they have been bullied or harassed online, according to the results of a new poll on Internet behavior.

In an Associated Press/MTV poll, 56 percent of respondents, who were between 14 and 24 years old, said they had "experienced abuse" through digital media.

That's up from 50 percent in a similar 2009 survey.

The story is too old to be commented.

If you say that you were 'abused' online, most likely on a video game, you probably deserved it.

I kind of agree, I mean, if you're going online you know what to expect and personally I take nothing said online personally(pardon the redundancy). People who let online insults get to them are just either weak minded or have really low self-esteem.
