More About Shame Nation by Sue Scheff; Melissa Schorr; Erin Bennett
 
 
 
Overview
In today's digitally-driven world, countless people are being electronically embarrassed every day, whether it's from trolling, cyber-slamming, digital drama, revenge porn, sexting, doxing, hacking, or other malicious virtual takedowns. This culture of destroying people with a simple keystroke is much more than a fad: it's the new normal. We have all sat back and watched the escalation of these vicious virtual pile-ons-celebrities and schoolgirls being slammed for their looks; an avalanche of ill will over one ill-conceived tweet; people losing jobs, scholarships, and their reputations for voicing an unpopular thought. How have we reached this state of Shame Nation, where our collective outrage is constantly being triggered against an endless supply of fresh victims? And is there anything we can do to stop it before it devastates us or someone we love?Shame Nation taps into our fascination and fear of digital shaming, sprinkling actual social media posts from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and more to illustrate how unbelievably mean things have become. From moms who mock photos of ugly babies to fat-shaming photos that become internet memes, nothing seems out of bounds. Shame Nation surveys the wreckage of the most shocking digital debacles, reveals how truly pervasive this phenomenon has become, and advises us on what we as concerned citizens need to do about it.
