While many victimizations use electronic tools for perpetration (e.g., cyberbullying, stalking and identity theft), it is also possible that the internet can become a tool for a violation of opportunity, intentionally and unintentionally. This can include:
- Posting pictures or video online of strangers
- Using social networking data to violate privacy or worse.
- Spreading misinformation using emails, texts and blog posts.
- Using another’s wireless network without authorization and/or to commit illegal activities without the owner’s knowledge.
