Media and EntertainmentSocial Media Posts and their Ramifications

December 9, 2021by Christina Dianellou

As the Vardy/Rooney case starts to dominate the headlines, the new age of technology brings forth serious allegations of social media offences.

In this technological age, social media users should be aware of the repercussions of their use of digital content and using platforms such as Instagram to post and make comments which could lead to accusations of defamation, and harassment. Social media should not be used as a forum to harass or defame others, and this new age will bring an increase in social media offences cases. Social media users need to be aware of the ramifications of what they post online, and those who have suffered at the hands of a social media offence, need to be aware that there are protections out there.
