We often talk of the enabling powers of social media – connecting users across the globe billions of times over each day. And with more and more users are dumping more and more of their personal information leaving an extended digital diary along the way, there’s bound to be malice both from people we know and those we may never have even met.
Cartwright King Solicitors out of the UK compiled this infographic detailing some of the laws that affect social media and cases where people have been arrested or imprisoned due to breaking them.
