    I was hugely game for this as my dissertation subject until it has come to how I am going to tackle it - I think I want to say that the Law doesn't go far enough to prosecute criminals on social media, such as the riots in London (assembling through events on Facebook) and things such as revenge porn and online harassment...would any of you shed any light on what sort of structure I would take to come to such a conclusion?

    What do you mean by structure?

    as in what i should go into for my chapters - I was thinking of possibly tackling crimes, such as revenge porn, cyberbullying etc per chapter - but I'm not sure that this would ultimately answer my question of whether new legislation is needed for regulating crime on social media

    You need to think about why/ why not the social media should be regulated. Read Mills 'on Liberty' for this.
    Also think of the challenges of punishing offenders online.
    Ie. The anonymity of the Internet, the fact the offender and victim can be in different jurisdictions where English law has no power, the fact the law is reactive so often doesn't cover novel technological advances.
