Rebecca Marino Quits Tennis Following Attacks on Social Media »

Canadian tennis professional Rebecca Marino announced she is quitting the sport, following a bout with depression that has been exacerbated by cyberbullying on social media sites. […] Although Marino said she has “thick skin,” the “really hurtful” words were compounded by the fact she has suffered from depression for the past six years. […] “My depression had come way before the so-called cyberbullying,” said Marino. “Social media has also taken its toll on me.”

She has also chosen to delete her Twitter and Facebook accounts with no immediate possibilities of returning.
Cyber bullying, though not as common as regular bullying, has shifted the attention to emotional changes an individual goes through while on social media sites and brings the focus on this mode of communication and its reach.
The impact of social media on our personal lives has not yet been quantified and now, the retirement of Canadian tennis player Rebecca Marino due to cyber bullying comes as a huge setback to the popularity of social media and the culture of sharing contents and opinions on the Internet.
