Abstract: In an era witnessing rapid advancements in technology and its subsequent ways of transforming the digital spheres, technology has now become a necessity, a new way of life that has been integrated into every aspect of human life. With the immense digital capabilities and possibilities emerging with technology, people are becoming more dependent on them that ever before. However, its concerning when people only seem to enjoy the benefits it brings but choose to be unaware of the threats and perils that accompanies it. This ignorance of cyber space leaves people more susceptible and vulnerable in the cyberspace, which results in an increased rate of cybercrimes leaving a detrimental impact on the victim’s mental health, self-esteem, and overall quality of life. This research dwells into one of the most pervasive forms of cybercrime of the century, Cyberbullying. In recent times, it has emerged as a major societal concern as young adults are engaging extensively in social media for communicating as well as networking. Due to this proliferation of social media usage into most people life and their ignorance of adopting cyber safety measures has made cyberbullying to be a major threat to the mental health and wellbeing of people. Especially in an age group of 18-30 years where cyberbullying seems pervasive and ubiquitous, its necessary to understand the dynamics of this phenomenon as well as its negative impacts in order to be equipped in cyberspaces. Cyber safety awareness is crucial to promote a safe and inclusive online environment. Cyber bullying is an intentional and consistent form of bullying that happens with the usage of electronic medias and communication platforms such as social media, messaging apps, etc. Unlike conventional forms of bullying, cyberbullying can happen anonymously as it transcends all physical boundaries in turn make sit more insidious and difficult to address. Cyberbullying can happen through various mediums but this particular research primarily focuses on cyberbullying that happens through social media. Social media sites are crucial in encouraging young adults to engage in cyberbullying as these platforms offer a fertile ground, a conducive environment for people to engage in acts of harassment or bullying, frequently under the guise of anonymous or pseudonymous identity. Since social media is so widely used, incidences of cyberbullying may easily get out of control and reach a large audience, which can worsen the anguish that victims suffer. In the light of increasing cases of cyberbullying and it’s deteriorating impacts on mental health of the victims, sometimes even its culmination in suicidal acts, there has been a heightened emphasis on understanding cyber safety awareness. Cyber safety awareness refers to a range of instructional programs, public awareness initiatives, and proactive measures that provide people the information they require to use the internet in a responsible and safe manner. Cyber safety awareness programs can also help lessen the negative effects of online harassment and promote a respectful and inclusive culture in online interactions by enabling young adults to identify and respond to incidents of cyberbullying. Considering the complex interplay that exists between cyberbullying, social media use, and cyber safety knowledge among young adults in the 18–30 age range, in order to understand this intricate relationship in a comprehensive manner, further study is a desperate needed. Examining the frequency, kind, and effects of cyberbullying on social media sites as well as evaluating the success of campaigns to raise awareness of cyber safety may be very helpful for legislators, educators, and mental health specialists who are trying to address this widespread problem. We can help create evidence-based tactics and treatments targeted at encouraging a safer and more welcoming online environment for young people by carrying out research in this field.
