Short article which highlights how easy it is to write something defamatory online, but how challenging it is to remove content.
Getting what is posted online deleted - a tough task
Posting offensive, harassing or defamatory content online may take a few minutes, but deleting it will take a lot of time and patience and what may seem like a lifetime.
According to a report by news.com.au, if one finds any content offensive or harassing in any nature it is not an easy thing to get rid of. Incidents of online bullying and harassment have become commonplace with the growing social networking.
Despite the fact that social media websites like Facebook and Twitter have stricter guidelines for the removal of offensive content, yet it is not an easy task to remove derogatory content against someone as compared to removal of unauthorized use of intellectual property, the reports said.
