Why You Should Think Twice Before Shaming Someone Online

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Social media has given us all more of a voice than we have ever had - and we're using it, for better or worse. Unfortunately it has become all too common to use that voice to shame someone we think deserves it. 

From the "Shit Parkers of Victoria" Facebook page to the @yesyoureracist Twitter account and #HasJustineLandedYet, there are no shortage of ways to call people out for questionable behaviour. 

Occasionally the shamer becomes the shamed. Is this enough reason to think twice before shaming someone online - maybe, but there's more.  Sometimes situations are not as clear cut as they appear and the repercussions of our actions can be long lasting.

In this eye-opening session Chris disects some well-known cases that have a lot more to them than meet the eye.
