Internet Trolling Victimization: An Empirical Examination of Incidence in Undergraduate Business Students
Case, Carl J.; King, Darwin L.
Research in Higher Education Journal, v34 May 2018
Internet trolling has been found to be a source of frustration and problematic for social media site users. Given that there have been few, if any, research studies examining the incidence and behavior of business undergraduates, the social media users and leaders of the future, this study was conducted. Findings suggest that students are active users and utilize a variety of social media providers. Importantly, gender and time spent at social media sites were found to be factors with regard to trolling volume victimization. Academic class, which could be used as a proxy for age, was not found to be significantly correlated with trolling. Results further imply that the undergraduate student troll victim is different than the general population victim.
