"A further aspect of using the peer group as a method of bullying is the opportunity for rapid transmission of emotions and behaviours through a crowd, diffusing the level of individual responsibility , so that each member feels less responsible for the victimisation, a process referred to as ‘social contagion’.
This has the added advantage that if the aggressive act is carried out by a single peer, the person bullied may feel that it is just that particular person who does not like him/her, whereas if the entire group engages in the activity, the person being bullied is likely to feel that everyone hates him/her and that this is due to his/her own personal failings" .
