Abuse, like slander, on social networks is frequent.
The victims of it are often afraid to lodge a complaint out of fear that the abuse will become even worse.
Legislators should better protect victims of abuse.
Abuse, like slander, on social networks is frequent. The victims of it are often afraid to lodge a complaint out of fear that the abuse will become even worse.
In many cases, the victims often become so frustrated and depressed that they commit suicide.
More should be done to curb abuse and to better inform users about abuse and about ways to stop it.
The victim of an abuse can indeed normally block (part of) the page of the abuser, but feels afraid to do so. An external body should be able to be contacted easily by victims to have the abusive content blocked or removed more easily and swiftly.
Legislators should better protect users through more widely publicized laws so that potential abusers are aware of the consequences of their actions.
At the same time, the authorities and the social networks themselves should promote human values extensively.
At the international level, the UN should draw up a code of conduct for social media based on human values, like those promoted by Danellandia.
Danellandia was created on 28 March, 2004. It is based on discussions about this world and its many problems with people from different backgrounds, countries, religions and ages.
Danellandia defined 25 human values as the basis for its campaign to make this world a better and more just place in many fields of human activities: politics, economics, the media, personal relationships, education, Nature care…
You can help to promote these values by sharing the material on this site.
Become a Danellandian of friend of Peace by promoting human values to boost peace.
This world needs people and leaders that put humanity first and not money or power. People and leaders that unite instead of creating tensions, divisions and conflicts.
Strong human values are a passport to a sustainable future.
The world of Peace is possible!
