420 views - Social network sites 'have duty' to stop cyberstalking

This news report ( is based on the first study into cyberstalking!!! considering MySpace launched in 2003 and Facebook in 2004 and Bebo in 2005 its a little bit overdue as I am willing to bet cyberstalking started the moment these SNS started, who hasn't looked up their exes, the girl we hated at school, our crushes etc. But when is having a a quick glance turn into a serious case of cyberstalking. Check out this story-

"Newsbeat spoke to another male victim who had been stalked online by a former workmate for more than three years. 'He started dozens of bogus accounts on every social networking site you can imagine," he said. "He's used those to contact my family, my friends and my schoolmates."

This isn't an isolated case, Working to Halt Abuse Online worked on 349 cases of cyberstalkig in 2010 -

To be honest, I think that this figure is well below what that actual figure of cyberstalking cases is....
