Elias Between Two Worlds - Ep. 3 - Cyberbullying
Anti-Bullying Week, an annual campaign that aims to combat bullying and abuse at school, is running from Monday, November 16, to Friday, November 20, this year.

However, they are closely followed by social media influencers (17%) and more specifically, YouTubers (14%).
