Does Social media contribute to mass killings in USA?

79 posts in this topic

The title says it all.

Do Facebook and/or Twitter etc. contribute to acts of senseless shootings that happen far too often in our part of the world?

Haha no. While social media does eliminate the need for "Big Brother" in this increasingly Orwellian society, there really is zero evidence linking it to any of these mass shooting atrocities...these shootings have been going on long before social media became popular.

No.

These people are just sick and twisted, they rarely have any "real-world" rationale for what they do.

Maybe they enjoy their 15 minutes of fame, but it isn't a driving factor.

Not at all. People who go on mass killing sprees are generally mentally disturbed.

Not really that much. Mass media may aggravate and help along those with already aggressive tendencies, but it does not make a normal, sane person go commit crimes.

As was posted in the other thread before I got kicked out (oops), there are numerous factors contributing towards these sort of incidents. To single out social media, or even the media in general would be foolish.

THE REASON IS TWITTER AND FACEBOOK, NOT THE FACT THAT ANYONE WHO ISN'T A FROG CAN OWN A FIREARM! BAN FACEBOOK! THAT'LL SOLVE IT!

There's probably some sick people who do it for the attention, but getting rid of social media wouldn't stop these people imo.

No it doesn't, But the lack of discipline as a child and the desensitization to violence through video games does.

Not as much as other factors, such as the availability of guns.

There have always been mass killings, so it's impossible to blame mass killings on social media.

Title needs changing

Pretty sure the claim used stronger language than simply contributes

Studies suggest that 'social' aspects were a primary cause of 28 massacres. Bullying, racism and social isolation - which can all occur on social media sites. On top of that you can add in '15 minutes of fame' motivation through self glorification. Often times mass murderers have conveyed warnings on social media sites right before committing the act. It is possible that the 'stressors' could occur on a social media sites.

Which is a clear connection to me.
