The Alborz Provincial Office of the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs is preparing a document ‘Reducing Social Harm on Cyber Space’ in a bid to tackle the growing problem among the youth.

“The document will be compiled in cooperation with non-governmental organizations, sociologists and the Cyber Police,” said Qodratollah Shemirani, deputy head of the office, ISNA reported.

The tasks of each executive body in reducing and checking social problems that stem from cyber space will be outlined in the document. Social and online media tools have harmed teenagers’ and young adults’ self-esteem and challenged their ability to interact in the society. Cyber harassment, bullying, and reduced face-to-face family time are among the negative outcomes.
