It’s not just cyber bullying but huge degrading of social media. Many people just abuse the systems and empowered themselves to promote wrong social values. Right, we can blame us, users for more freedom but are we responsible for our own actions and our children and our social circle. Apparently, not. I believe legal framework must put the onus on the service providers to screen their users and be partially responsible for their users’ deeds.

Cell phones were supposed to be tools. Now they have become toys. I cant go anywhere without seeing some kid hunched over texting someone.

If texting is such a problem with your school friends then stop giving out your number. No doubt your parents got you a cell phone for security reasons so I doubt you are going to miss much.
