Social media

With regard to the incessant and disgusting trolling of anyone on social media, the answer is patently obvious.  Don’t use it.  I only use Facebook to hear about local and family news and visit genealogy groups.  I don’t use any other form of social media and I don’t miss it.  I did have a Twitter account for a while but closed it when I was violently abused by someone I had never met.  I don’t miss it. Virtually everyone in Parliament House in Canberra has at least one social media account.  None are necessary. Close the accounts of all MPs and staffers and make it clear that anyone using social media under an alias will be sacked.
