Welcome to the Debate…

15 Oct

As the technology generation, the way we communicate is continually evolving. From the simple text message to contemporary networking websites, it has become increasingly apparent that this media is the new frontier in social interaction. Although an entirely positive movement in many aspects, the downside to such a public forum of speech is rapidly becoming more severe.
Thr3e-Thinking wants to explore the extent to which cyber bullying, in particular, can be regulated and how increasingly essential the need for regulation has become. By looking specifically at case studies illustrating the broad spectrum of the issue, it is possible to debate the extremities related to this new method of communication and how it can be controlled.
One aspect of the problem is the flaws and pitfalls associated with freedom of speech and how it can be misconstrued for “bullying”. Can over regulation lead to a backlash from the public when it appears to restrict views and personal opinion?
