  9. This points out again the inadequacy of laws that protect someone against cyber crimes. The adversaries mainly target teenagers and kids through cyberbullying, which is why we need to have specific laws for those affected. It would not only make the interpretation of law in context to cyber laws clearer but also invoke fear in the minds of adversaries.

It is illegal in some states, it should be illegal everywhere. Mostly the bullying uses untrue statements but sometimes it outs someone for their personal behavior.

  16. This is an eye-opener! The age restriction on most of these social medias is 13+ and that is for a reason. Users, both young and adult should be given workshops on internet etiquette. The article is a no-nonsense, to-the-point, much appreciated.
