Bullying is defined as any form of psychological, verbal or physical abuse produced between school children repeatedly over a certain period of time. When social networks are used as a means of aggression, the phenomenon is called Cyberbullying. One of the most frequent manifestations of this phenomenon is the publication of photographs that can often cause real disturbances to their protagonists, who are usually tagged so that their contacts see the images. It is also very common to create pages or groups intended to attack, mock or denounce some intimate aspect of the “victim”
