There is proof that the social media in this age are driving these changes faster than imagined. Consequently, the social media poses lots of challenges on a global level because of the differences that exist especially among the cultures.

This paper therefore using the Blake’s prototype proposes ways to ensure social media regulations and also identifies the possible challenges that could be faced in regulating social media network.
