With the massive trend in Social Networking for personal use, cyber-bullying has also massively increased with this technology. This situation has become even more elevated with the recent suicide of a young boy, due to the harassment he received. As shocking as this is, it is something that is very real and has happened within the past year alone.

It is my hope that our culture will not become so technological that we lose human contact and personal touch. I believe that more restrictions and accountability should be used for social networking, and face-to-face discussions about this issue will start to happen more often.
