Google Docs brings a certain level of anonymity and there have been accounts linking Google Docs and bullying. Users collaborate together laughing at or discussing another user while they are there to read everything that is being said. Once finished the chat can be deleted, the document can be sent to the trash and the trash can be emptied. Users can also be added with viewing options where they don’t have permissions to edit and are lured merely to be jeered at.
This act can then be carried home. They simply reload the doc they were working on or they start a new one. Again, this is something that can be easily hidden from parents or guardians because, from a distance, it looks like your child is typing a very detailed word document.
