Instagram is the worst social network for cyber bullying: study

Move over, Facebook, Instagram is now the worst social networking site for cyber bullying.

Ditch the Label, a British anti-bullying nonprofit group, says its investigation revealed that the photo-sharing site is where youth between 12 and 20 experience cyber bullying the most.

The organization surveyed over 10,000 British teens to measure their experiences with cyberbullying. Seventeen percent of respondents reported being cyber bullied — with 42% saying they were bullied on Instagram. Facebook wasn’t far behind, at 37%, Snapchat was next at 31%. Twitter (9%) and Tumblr (3%) were at the bottom.

Twitter Trolls & Cyber Bullying: How Free Are You to Express Yourself in the Age of Social Media

Last month Twitter suspended Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya’s Twitter Account after he posted a series of offensive tweets that were targeted at JNU student Shehla Rashid’s tweet against BJP. Twitter had to suspend his account as people accused the singer of using “inappropriate” and “insulting” language. Twitter reports that Abhijeet is considered to be a serial offender.

This brings us to the question of how free we are to express our opinions.

Out of all the fundamental rights, the freedom of speech and expression are the most complex rights. You have a natural right to freely express through any media without any outside interference like censorship, without reprisal or threats or fear of getting your account suspended on Twitter.

Online predator targeting women via social media in Randolph, Montgomery counties

RANDOLPH COUNTY — The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office has been
getting reports of an online predator targeting women through social media.

Someone’s baiting women into sending compromising pictures by
hacking the Facebook accounts of people they know.

“He’s asking them, telling them he’s a talent agent and trying
to solicit them into being models,” said Sheriff Graves, Randolph County.

Sheriff Graves says the con artist accesses people’s Facebook pages,
then sends out messages to their friends’ list saying things like,
“I added you because I was wondering if you’d be interested in a

photographs, he uses that to threaten them or extort them into sending
additional photographs or that he will expose to
