Cyberstalking is generally considered to be harassment that originates online; however it is also recognized that other forms of pre-existing stalking can transfer into online environments. Cellular phones are now owned by the vast majority of adults (91% in 2010/2011) in the United Kingdom. It is believed that this number will approach, and probably reach, 95% within the near future.

Cyberspace reflects the real world and some people tend not to remember that.
