Abstract
The internet poses a particularly challenging balancing act between criminal activity and allowed use due to its flexible proposed system with stress on ease of communication. A more favourable atmosphere for it in an upsurge in cybercrimes has been generated by the emergence of several social media platforms. This project was inspired by the vagueness of what exactly defines cybercrime due to a lack of agreement on what should be included in the calculation. This essay outlines the various methods that cyber criminals use to commit crimes on various social media outlets. Since there are no procedures in place to verify identification, this presents a problem. The goal of this essay is to ascertain the degree to which the exponential rise in social media use has aided in cybercrime. We used the doctrinal approach of legal research for this essay. The research found that social media platforms' accessibility, affordability, and ease of use have made it incredibly an desirable location for business. The study concludes that making people aware of such crimes can significantly reduce the threat of cybercrime. The article finishes by underlining the necessity of creating a legislative framework specific to cybercrime to deter social media cybercrimes. It suggests among many people believe that revealing personal information or data on social media sites should be avoided.
