“There’s a lot of bad things that grown ups don’t see," said one respondent in a cyberbullying survey.

In a survey of teenage girls by social network We Heart It, respondents reported being bullied the most on Facebook. According to Time, 66 percent of the 5,000 respondents reported being bullied on the platform. That beat other social networks by a long shot – 19 percent experienced bullying on Twitter, and 9 percent on Instagram. This jibes with other surveys, which have found online harassment to be particularly common on Facebook.

The social network was cited by a large majority of respondents for being a place where they felt like they didn’t fit in or experienced some type of drama with friends.
