    I guess it depends on what the original crime was. If it was for soliciting minors for sex, then yeah, I can see a broad prohibition being necessary. Quite honestly, you don't need social media to obtain your news and stuff regardless of what SCOTUS implies. In fact, I'd say letting social media be your primary news source should be prohibited. :D

    I'd think at least some of these sex offenders would have already been banned as part of their probation, and that would include access to a computer.

    Don't need a computer, though, Allene. Most young people today use their phones as their primary means for Internet access.

    Yes, that's true. I just dated myself, even though I use my phone to access the Internet when I'm away from home. I'd hate to use it as a primary means, though. The screen is too small.
