Even Phone, Google is able to track the location of your phone, and knows everywhere you go.

    (c) Not saying people shouldn't use media, but try to cut short of using media. Like unnecessary ones. Is it really necessary to post pictures on Instagram? Where people can see the things you post. If you're just browsing through Facebook, then it should be fine. Inform these people through social media itself, newspaper or a talk if you want to. Also, since this all started from "Cyberbullies", we should also try to stop them. Why do they cyberbully? Is it because they are suffering? These people should also have a talk once in a while, clearing them off from cyberbullying as soon as possible.
