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. There is therefore a pressing need for some forms on the social media to protect the identity of nations, ensure security across borders and prevent nation-to-nation harassment and discrimination. This paper therefore using the Blakeâ€™s prototype proposes ways to ensure social media regulations and also identifies the possible challenges that could be faced in regulating social media network.
