The paper contains a theoretical and empirical understanding of cyber crime and the misuse and abuse of social networks, especially those forms which violate the right to privacy as one of the basic human rights. Cybercrime is a new kind of crime which appeared as a result of great technological advances in the field of telecommunications. A large number of Internet and social networks users are exposed to daily victimization due to the use of computer technology, if the information transmitted through social networks is misused or abused. Therefore, the paper is dedicated to the misuse and abuse of social networks, which could be considered as a deviant behavior, which is not always legally sanctioned as criminal behavior, although it is certainly socially unacceptable and opposite to the social norms of behavior. Computer criminality and the misuse and abuse of social networks, considered as a deviant behavior and as a part of computer crime, are characterized by the p...erpetrators’ anonymity, permanent availability of the victim and the high level of victimization, multijuridical nature, difficult prosecuting procedure and gathering of the evidence, as well as the imposition of a legal sanction. Social networks, as the most common and most popular way of communication in the modern world, have led to the fact that the private life has become an integral part of public life. A serious lack due to the use of social networks is the great exposure of the user to various forms of abuse, such as identity theft, fraud, digital violence (sexual violence and harassment, bullying, stalking, cyber bullying, hate speech, terrorism), vandalism, human trafficking and organ trafficking, bootlegging, as well as replacement of the real world with virtual life and creation of pathological dependence on the use of the Internet. Theoretical study and empirical research of computer crime and social networks’ misuse and abuse should contribute to the developement of one better system of protection and security improvement for all users of social networks. Current international and national legislation is mainly related to the abuse of computer hardware and software, which during the commission of crimes can be a means of execution or target of attack (eg, computer theft, fraud, damage of computer data and programs, sabotage, creation of computer viruses), while certain forms of abuse of social networks are still not incriminated, which significantly contributes to increased victimization, particularly in the area of privacy.
