Social Media and the Law
There is no shortage of attacks, criticisms, intolerance, name calling, vulgar language and lack of civility on social media. People feel more inclined to speak their mind because they are looking into a computer screen and not into the eyes of another human being.
While the first amendment does give you the right to free speech, it does not entitle you to harass, intimidate or bully others. So before you post nasty comments about someone else, review the law and remember what your mother said, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all."
