Social Media and Potential for Violence in Adolescents

DIGITAL PSYCHIATRY

In June 2014, numerous news outlets told the chilling story of two Wisconsin preteens who lured their best friend into the woods and stabbed her 19 times. When asked why, these girls reported that the internet meme, “Slenderman,” drove them to do it. Following this horrific crime, the typical questions of “how” and “why” were asked, but soon came another question: was the internet, in fact, an accomplice? Had their online activity led to a blurring of fiction and reality in such a way that had allowed them to commit attempted murder?
