Tirunelveli: Women should not upload their photographs on social media platforms such as Facebook and Whatsapp as they could be misused, a senior police officer cautioned on Friday. "Changing social scenario invites newer offences. In future, terrorism will evolve into cyber terrorism and there also might be cyber wars between nations," Southern Zone IG S Murugan said.
"In the digital world nothing is deletable. Once we insert the details they can't be deleted. So women should not use their pictures for profiles in Facebook as it is being misused (by some) nowadays," he said, adding, 'unlawful acts' using electronic devices were on the rise. Speaking at a seminar in the St.Xaviers College, Palayamkottai here titled "Cyber Crimes and Social Media Issues," Murugan said having fake IDs and hacking of websites among others were "punishable offences." He noted that modern day youth were 'addicted' to social media like Facebook and Whatsapp.
