Bullying was once classified as being physical, verbal, direct and indirect (Smith et al., 2008). However, recent developments in technology and current technology-centered lifestyle have brought a different type of bullying called as "cyberbullying" (Akbaba & Eroğlu, 2013). Cyberbullying is the intentional act of harrasing of others by individuals or groups using technology as a mean (Belsey, 2007; Calvete, Orue, Estévez, Villardón, & Padilla 2010). Cyberbullying has created serious problems, notably psychological distress, among people. Therefore it is of great significance to take serious measures to overcome cyberbullying (Beale & Hall, 2007). To do this, it is required to thoroughly investigate possible variables that may correlate with cyberbullying (Demir & Seferoğlu, 2016). Therefore, in this study, it was aimed to determine the relationship between cyberbullying and perceived social support, which is considered as one of the potential reasons for cyberbullying (Calvete et al., 2010; Demeray & Malecki, 2003; Park, Na & Kim, 2014). Perceived social support is defined as the perception an individual has of being loved, cared for and valued by others (Demaray & Malecki, 2003). Moreover, it was also aimed to determine if cyberbullying differs across gender, grade and frequency of internet use.
