Hi everyone :wavey:

I need your help

Worryingly, violent content being shared online is becoming increasingly more difficult to regulate due to the sheer volume of material being posted every second.

I'm wondering if you have unwillingly witnessed violent content online? Via social media/ whatsapp... I'm interested to know how old you were when you came across it, how it made you feel and whether or not you knew what to do with it. Did you do anything about it?

Successful case studies will be used in an article shared with the media to raise the issue and effects it has.
Join the conversation here and if you're willing to be a case study and share you story please PM me.
The article will be highlighting the impact of violent content on young people using our latest research.

You can remain anonymous if you would like.

Thanks so much,
Hannah :heart:

I have seen some very violent videos back when I made twitter in 2013. I was maybe 12/13 back then, and I came across it by randomly clicking accounts (I didn't know how to use twitter lol) and this video came up of some beheadings. I didn't know if it was real or not so I kept scrolling down, seeing more messed up things (like a woman mutilating her...yeah). I can still picture it to this day. Back then I didn't know what to do (like how to report content and stuff) so I kinda just left it at that.

so recently I had a friend on snapchat who posted a video of a man being shot several times on his skull I believe it was form another country as they were talking in another language . however it was extremely disturbing. I didn't report this as he posted a snap before saying graphic warning ahead. it was my choice to click next. however my heart ached for the man and how heartless they are on his family and alone related to him.

I don't think I've ever unwillingly watched something truly horrifically violent. I do think my curiosity gets the better of me at times even today. I remember when the first wave of beheading videos were first being circulated about 20 years ago, so I must have been... 12? 13? Even though you could only make out a few pixels, it was still more than sufficient to be completely shocked and numb for a few days.

You ever heard of 3 guys one hammer? Yeah, back in like year 7 or 8, my mates mentioned that they watched it and almost threw up. Being curious and stupid, I asked for the link. So when I got home, I decided to watch it. Couldn't watch much, found it sickening tbf. Did my best to stay away from violent content after that.

Cos I can only vaguely remember bits and pieces and it's not lucid in my mind. Plus, I choose to focus on positive thoughts rather than negative so it's not something I think about.
