Teen girls convicted of Instagram cyberbullying
In Sweden, two teenage girls were convicted Tuesday for posting sexual insults about other kids on the Instagram photo and video sharing site owned by Facebook.
The derogatory cyberbullying remarks were posted in December and quickly spread on the Internet before the account was shut down.
An attorney representing 38 young victims hopes the verdict will send a message that you cannot remain anonymous and bully people in this way.
The girls were both fined and one teen must also perform community service.
