Extract from the article:

Humiliation among peers, assaults on dignity, and psychological and sexual harassment have been analysed by sociologists, psychologists and even criminologists. These ‘toxic’ and ‘unhealthy’ interactions that call into question the honour and dignity of the individual, which have been observed in professional environments (see, for example, Hirigoyen, 2002; Leymann, 1993; Ravisy, 2000) and school settings (particularly Saint Martin, 2012; Tisseron, 2012), now seem to be reflected online. Various terms are used in the literature to refer to these acts: we talk about ‘cyberstalking’, ‘cyberbullying’ and even ‘digital humiliation’.
