On Facebook, every expression, whether in the form of status or messages can be delivered via text or pictures in a free country so vulnerable misleading. Comments or statement is a potential trigger of conflict and psychological affects children.
“There are some cases, these children reported her friend, the boy who reported damage, then complain to their parents. Finally, the war is on Facebook. But that is not a war any more children, but parents as parents,” said a woman who also works as a teacher in a State University of Jakarta.
