During this week’s lecture, we discussed online comments and online shaming. Online shaming has a huge impact in the digital world. Many stopped having constructive conversations online and instead started to use public shaming to shift the beliefs. People can shame each other by using different sources- online, through Twitter, Facebook, and email.
Being the victim of a public shaming has the potential to ruin someone’s life—financially, emotionally, and physically. We’ve seen through time how young people took their own lives and adults lost their livelihoods. People should understand that they can’t change something through online shaming, it would just create noise.
In the online world, everyone is a public figure and everyone is a target. The emotional impact of digital shaming can be overwhelming. Everyone should control their actions towards other people.
