Bullying in school classes was investigated using social network data. This paper contains three sections. In the first section the dyadic relation between bullies and victims was investigated. The findings revealed that bullies are rejected by those for whom they are a potential threat, and that bullies generally choose their victims so as to minimize loss of affection. In the second section the impact of the class context on the effect of bullying on acceptance was examined. The findings demonstrated that the negative impact of individual bullying on peer acceptance was weakened if bullying occurs by popular adolescents. In the third part a social network analysis of a school class was presented. The findings suggested that in-group and out-group effects are important in explaining the group process of bullying, especially when bullies are popular and support each other. The social network perspective might provide valuable information for teachers on bullying, because it can inform teachers about dyadic and group processes in their classroom.
