Inappropriate Use Digital Media

Dkaiser
 A time when you or someone you know was the recipient of an inappropriate use of digital media or when you might have used digital media in an inappropriate manner. How did this make you or others feel? What might have been done differently?

One of my kids friends when they were ten years old were on a social media site. I’m assuming an older adolescent or adult was on that site threatened him by saying if you tell anyone I told you what I did I will find you and beat you. The person asked him to tell the person where he lived and how old he was.
He was at our house and he and my kid told me what happened. I was really worried and it upset all the kids at our house. I told him to not reply back. Take a screen shot of the threat and report it to the site. He did and I notified his mom that it happened and the steps we took to report it.
What might have been done differently ? If he would have come to me sooner or another trusted adult earlier letting us know what had happened and if this had happened before to him or my kid.
