I wonder if “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” has a smart phone? To refresh your memory, the famous children’s book had the terrible troll that fortunate for the goats, was fooled out of his ruminant animal supper. Today, however combating attacks of trolls is not so easy. The New York Times article, Web Trolls Winning as Incivility Increases, by Farhad Manjoo recently describes the impact of online anonymous stalkers that surf the web finding victims to harass. Celebrities and those affiliated with them are frequently harassed, stalked and abused. For some the continuous assault of people with the sole intention of insulting, defaming and abusing others is unbearable. The article stated that because of the onslaught of Trolls, many people are choosing to drop out of social media all together.
Social media networking is a huge phenomenon that has completely transformed contemporary culture. Individuals are communicating with hundreds of thousands of people across the globe with a simple click of the mouse or tap of a screen. Connecting with friends, family, business associates and the public has never been easier. However there is a dark side to this newly embraced form of communication. People are suffereing from the abuse of anonymous perpetrators called Trolls.
