Online bullying can start at an early age and have a lasting impact.

A new Associated Press-MTV poll of students in their teens and early 20s finds that 56% have been the target of some type of online taunting, harassment or bullying.

A third of those surveyed say they've been involved in "sexting."

And of those in a relationship, four out of ten say computers or cellphones have been used to abuse or control them.
