We need social media regulation NOW, Who are the people sharing these images?, hand over their data and prosecute them.

So they block imgur, due to alegations of hosting child abuse images, where as Facebook etc are known for it, why not block Facebook and Instagram.

It's an interesting conundrum, though I think one that needs some serious attention - how do you manage people's illegal behaviour online in any sort of effective manner? I am appalled with how people are finding it A-OK to utter death threats online, and generally aren't facing any real repercussions, even when they post under real names. It's not legal here in Canada, yet all one hears about is "trying to get their accounts shut down".

I dunno, I think there needs to be some balls put in to the laws to catch up with the ignoramuses who believe that because they punched it in to their keyboard, it's fine.

Nobody took me seriously years ago when I was suggesting people should be licensed to get online. ;-)

I agree, here in the UK we have various laws that cover things like misuse of telecommunications. We need to enforce existing laws fully and make amendments so the law keeps up with technology.

Tech companies know who these people are and could help but won't citing human rights or the first amendment or ironically privacy.

We have a problems in the Uk, knife crime, attacks on emergency services and nothing happens that sends a clear message to say it won't be tolerated, so unless that happens it is a free for all, as you know you can get away with it.

I like the comment about being "licensed to get online." good idea, maybe people need an IQ test first, anyone sharing a pic of a dead child with their throat slit really needs their head looking at.
