Redding, Calif -- Social media sites like Facebook , Twitter , Instagram, and Snapchat are all places you can talk and engage with friends , families, and even strangers.
But sometimes what you say online could come back to haunt you.
"Social media has kinda gotten a little crazy lately people don’t talk to each other the way they would face to face," said Dale Ball.
On Tuesday, a Shasta county jury found Kenneth Wayne Reynolds guilty of assault after he punched a stranger, who he had an Facebook argument with a few weeks prior, in the back of the head at the Mt Shasta Mall.
So we wanted to know how often do adults fight online.
Redding crime 2.0 admin Dale Ball says they happen quite after.
"Sometimes as an admin is like babysitting. Rude behavior and even threats," said Ball.
Ball adds when they began the Shasta County Facebook group, it was meant as a site where residents could post crime happening within the city.
But some users have found these posts as an outlet for arguments.
So, The site, just like many others , has rules to keep them safe including "No personal attacks, bickering or trolling. Such posts and comments will be removed. Posters may be blocked from group participation."
"Kicking off the trouble makers then they get mad about it but it makes it easier to have a successful site," said Ball.
But pages for businesses and agencies may not be as closely monitored.
So here are some tips from Facebook on how you can stay safe.
Adjust your privacy settings and review them often, only accept friend requests from people you know personally, and think before you post.
