Masquerading is a type of cyber-bullying where a bully creates a fake identity . In addition to creating a fake identity, the bully can impersonate someone's friend and turn them against their friend by sending horrible and hurtful messages.

Good to know:

In a survey...

56% of people saw others cyber-bullied / feeling unsafe. 44% have felt unsafe or were cyber-bullied. 1 in 3 young people are cyber-bullied and most commonly are girls.

Advice and what you can do:

You should always tell someone if you are being cyber-bullied or if someone else is, before doing this you can block them first. Also, don't let it get to you and know you don't have to go through it on your own. I also advise you not to retaliate but instead talk to someone.
