Why You Should Think Twice Before Shaming Anyone on Social Media This public service announcement applies to most of you (many of whom get some sick joy from torturing both Colin and me from behind your blessed shroud of anonymity). "Shaming, it seems, has become a core competency of the Internet, and it’s one that can destroy both lives and livelihoods.

At its best, social media has given a voice to the disenfranchised, allowing them to bypass the gatekeepers of power and publicize injustices that might otherwise remain invisible. At its worst, it’s a weapon of mass reputation destruction, capable of amplifying slander, bullying, and casual idiocy on a scale never before possible." [WIRED]
