Social Media Leads to Teen Violence
By: Emma Lehto
Is there a link between social media and teen violence?
People have argued the exposure to violent imagery does not force violence. What do you say to this?
Not only has social media a place for teens to see violence it is a place to promote violence or using it for fame. Explain this.
Is all of the violence occuring online physical?
How can these situations be fixed?
