This November has been anti-bullying month in the UK. Guest blogger Daniel Miller shares insights from his work on social media and bullying, or ‘taunting’, as he prefers to call it. He suggests to move away from technology-focused explanations for bullying, and instead zoom in on the role of social media in changing the nature and form of negative interactions among school pupils. Daniel Miller is Professor of Anthropology at University College London and leads both the international research team and UK branch of the Global Social Media Impact Study and the Why We Post project.
