I haven’t contested privacy and freedom apply to all aspects of life. What I have said is that those concepts are regularly compromised by individuals voluntarily such as when “joining” things where rules exist which are capable of impacting upon those concepts. I do not have the IT savvy to know what social media companies can or can’t do to stop or reduce the behaviour in issue and that would be the first avenue to explore but if they are not capable of significantly addressing the problem then I wouldn’t have a problem with freedoms and/or privacy being affected in order to have that significant impact. This would be because social media is not an essential in life and the extent of impingement on any “rights” would be known in advance. We do it, for example, when bank accounts are opened and they are in reality an essential for the vast majority so I can’t see why being on social media is anything more important so as to say some controls shouldn’t be in place if the problem can’t be solved otherwise. Bottom line for me is if someone is breaking the law then we should have means in place, if necessary, to ensure accountability for that person.
