  • Digital self-bullying – auto-trolling, when you write harmful comments from a fake profile on your real profile. 
  • Self-baiting – when you use yourself as bait for hateful comments. 
  • Digitization of physical self-harm – uploading images of physical self-harm. 
  • It can quickly develop into suicidal behavior and suicide attempts.
