Is it illegal to say nasty things about someone on social media? What happens if you post up a video of a fight? What if someone shares a naked photo of you online?

Youthlaw explains how smartphones and social media can lead to legal trouble for young people. Fictional scenarios and videos show how things said and done online can lead to real-life legal consequences. At the same time, young people are introduced to ways they can avoid legal trouble using free resources and services available to them online.
