State laws are beginning to distinguish between cyberstalking and other kinds of harassment. Some states now have laws specifically aimed at cyberstalkers. Some also distinguish between cyberstalking, which involves the use of social media to threaten a victim, and cyberharassment, which is a sub-category of cyberstalking that involves social media harassment without a credible threat. States without these statutes treat cyberstalking and cyberharassment the same as any other stalking or harassment. For help figuring out what to do about these social media laws, see the Your Options page of this website.
