In the context of social media, the question, 'to what extent can the State exercise legitimate authority in regards to the imposition of regulation?' is concerned with understanding the limits of State control and law-making capacity in regards to what is considered a legitimate use of regulating the use of social media. In this context, this question represents a contribution to the age-old debate of State control versus personal freedoms and liberty. This investigation is situated within the epistemology that has developed over a long period of time looking at the question of State versus individual freedoms, but differentiates itself by addressing a very contemporary phenomenon which is social media.
