A Billion Angry Brains II

A Billion Angry Brains II

July 09, 2013 By Janko Predovic

An interesting observation made: technology often does not change the nature of hostility, but rather then power of it.

Another snippet from this intriguing analysis of hostility on the internet:

“Perhaps you once had to endure a misguided kindergarten teacher advise that Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can never hurt you. This adage has always been distressingly naïve. But the age of Twitter, Change.org, and YouTube has rendered it downright ludicrous. Before social media technologies, transient anger could result in hurt feelings, awkward silences, adolescent gossip, or private stewing. Today, trivial provocations can result in lost business, lost jobs, suicidal teens, and public humiliation on a massive and permanent scale.”
