To be able to put my empirical material in context and in order to increase the understanding of it, I have used a theory of ideal victims and perpetrators ideal. In my results I have, among other things concluded that victims of cyberbullying are described as ideal victims but also to those who bully online are described both as victims and as perpetrators. I have also concluded that the causes, consequences and solutions described in the blogs do not fit together. One reason described, for example, that you can be anonymous on the internet but no one writes that a solution might be to make the Internet less anonymous. (Less)
