RIP Amanda Todd: Victim of Bullying (VIDEO)

15-year-old teenager Amanda Todd, from Vancouver, committed suicide Wednesday based on constant bullying from classmates, after she made a series of YouTube videos telling her story to the world using flash cards. See video below...
The first bullying occurred when a man contacted her on Facebook after she had flashed herself during a chat session with friends. The man would later threaten to send around the picture of her topless "if [she] don't put on a show."

Terrifyingly, the stranger knew everything about her: her address, school, friends, relatives, and the names of her family members. Soon, her naked photo had been forwarded "to everyone."

As the pics spread throughout her community, classmates in her school began to bully her and things only got worse. The bullying got so bad that Amanda changed schools and found a new group of friends in an effort to leave behind the bullies. But it seemed, everywhere she went, the bully trend continues, till she couldn't take it no more and killed herself.

Do you think teenagers should be prevented from using social media till a certain stage?
