Social Media and Juvenile Victimization
Computers, the Internet, and other technology tools have changed the face of modern society and made communication faster, easier, and more interactive than ever. Social media sites allow individuals from around the world to connect. Unfortunately, social media also has created new venues for victimization. Abusive activities before the Internet age were limited to physical interactions, face-to-face communication, or written documents. Now these activities have moved to the digital world and can enter into a child’s home, leaving no safe place for children. These digital crimes include cyber-bullying, cyber-stalking, and cyber-hate. Juveniles are often the victims of these kinds of digital abuse. One of the major challenges for today’s society is to determine how to mitigate digital juvenile victimization.
For this Discussion, search for and select a case in which social media played a role in a juvenile’s victimization. Then select one resource aimed at reducing juvenile victimization that has occurred through the use of social media, and consider whether this resource is effective.
Post by Day 4 a description of the case you selected, and explain how social media played a role in the juvenile’s victimization. Then explain two challenges the criminal justice system faces in addressing the role of social media in juvenile victimization. Finally, describe one resource aimed at reducing juvenile victimization that has occurred through the use of social media, and explain how this resource might be effective.
