Or is it just me?

Maybe it’s always been this way and the viral nature of social media simply brings about more chatter and news coverage of these things in this day and age.  Or maybe it truly is a culture thing.

All I can say for sure is that when you look at a newsfeed for even an hour or two, you notice something.

Many of the stories above touch upon bad behavior through social media.  I’ve written before about this.

Many are quick to blame social media and the internet itself for the negative sides of people’s behavior online (I’m guilty of it myself sometimes and have to catch myself).  But the truth is, such tools are merely vehicles through which people express already existing traits online.  In other words, it’s the person, not the tool they use.

But who knows, maybe there’s hope.
