NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- MTV and The Associated Press today revealed the results of a new study exploring the pervasiveness of digital abuse, how it is affecting America's youth and how they're responding to it. According to the study, 76 percent of 14-24 year olds say that digital abuse is a serious problem for people their age. More than half (56 percent) of those surveyed say they have experienced abuse through social and digital media, up from 50 percent reported in the 2009 MTV-AP digital abuse survey. However, compared to 2009, young people in the 2011 study were significantly more likely to intervene, with a majority now saying they would step in if they saw someone "being mean online."
