Default Social media harassment

Hi,

Someone from a different country is harassing my girlfriend on FB and Instagram and it does not help to block her because the person keeps creating new profiles and even started harassing her friends. It has become so bad that my girlfriend had to deactivate her accounts. How can we stop this? Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

She deactivated her accounts so she stopped it. She can continue to act like an adult and stay away from Facebook and Instagram.

Default Re: Social media harassment

This is actually a kind of Cyberstalking (online harassment that involves using electronic means to stalk a victim, and generally refers to a pattern of threatening or malicious behaviors). Since the wrongdoer is from another country, online anonymity can make it difficult to verify a stalker’s identity.

If your girlfriend, consider suspending social networking accounts until the stalking has been resolved. If decide to continue to use social networking sites, here are a few tips to help keep your girlfriend safe.

Take advantage of privacy settings.
Limit how much personal information you post to your account.
Do not accept "friend requests" (or "follow requests") from strangers. If you recognize the individual sending the request, contact him or her off-line to verify he or she sent the request
Warn your friends and acquaintances not to post personal information about you, especially your contact information and location.
Avoid online polls or quizzes, particularly those that ask for personal information.
Don't post photographs of your home that might indicate its location. For example, don't post photographs showing a house number or an identifying landmark in the background.
Use caution when connecting your cell phone to your social networking account. If you do decide to connect your cell phone to your online account, use extreme caution in providing live updates on your location or activities.
Avoid posting information about your current or future locations, or providing information a stalker may later use to hone in on your location, such as a review of a restaurant near your house.
Always use a strong, unique password for every social networking site.

Are you just copy and pasting this response? Because that’s the actual definition of not useful. What a mod said is information that might be found useful to others. Not just lame comments made for the sake of saying something.

Another worthless reply. If you have something useful to add within the facts of the original post, that would be a different story.

I wish there was a real moderator here that would lock these old threads when people start posting nonsense to them.
