I think Facebook has bought it's own ticket to entering into the dehumanization efforts in our society.

Stories like this link are becoming more common place, with little effort at times by facebook to actually have enough decency to work over time to stop videos of self harm and or crimes being committed. Exactly how hard would it be for facebook to hire full time moderators to screen for something like this? FB has a report feature for those that do not know to report those who are registered sex offenders and have thusly their profiles are removed and they are blocked from FB, but we are supposed to believe they cant control everything ? When they sell our information to advertisers non stop so that they can build profiles off of our habits on FB we are to believe that FB is helpless due to their own policies to remove videos such as these.

The only positive thing that comes from morons who commit crimes and post the videos to facebook is that they can easily be caught and prosecuted , self harm, cries for help from those that are suicidal  etc, just imagine at the very least if there was a buffer window that videos have to be reviewed before posting, perhaps the girl would have had the time to rethink her situation and seek help else where, perhaps it wouldn't have changed a thing. For facebook to not even try to have better policies and protectio.... i find to be sickening; how long until terrorists are allowed to post beheadings on FB pages ? What's next in the dehumanization that Facebook engages in from selling our personal information to probably in some way profiting in others pain and misery from the hits that FB gets from such postings.

Live video streaming is supposed to be a new tool that enables people to share their lives in real time with their friends and family. But, lately, the social media function has become a tragic tool to document the death of teens.

14-year-old Nakia Venant of Miami Gardens, Florida, is one of the latest victims of this terrible trend. According to the Miami Herald, Venant hanged herself in the bathroom of her foster home on Facebook Live on January 22. At least one of her friends watched the live feed, which ended at around 3:03 a.m., and called the police. Efforts to revive her were unsuccessful, and she was transferred to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Venant, who called herself HotHead Nikee on her social media channels, was described by her friend Gerta Telfort as "smart academically, loved to smile and [had] lots of charisma," with aspirations of one day writing a book on her life. Her Facebook page, where she frequently posted, is now a memorial page.

Both the Miami Gardens Police Department and Florida Department of Children & Families are reportedly investigating this incident.

The video has since been taken down, as it violates Facebook's policy, which prohibits "content that promotes or encourages suicide or any other type of self-injury, including self-mutilation and eating disorders."

"The vast majority of people are using Facebook Live to come together and share experiences in the moment with their friends and family," Christine Chen, a Facebook spokesperson, told The Miami Herald. "But if someone does violate our Community Standards while using Live, we want to interrupt these streams as quickly as possible when they're reported to us. So we've given people a way to report violations during a live broadcast. We also suggest people contact law enforcement or emergency services themselves if they become aware of something where the authorities can help."

Despite these attempts, Venant's tragic livestream suicide is the second such tragedy in less than a month.

On December 30, 2016, 12-year-old Katelyn Nicole Davis hanged herself while streaming live on the website Live. me. It took two weeks for Facebook to remove the video.

Actor Frederick Jay Bowdy took his own life on Monday as he filmed the moment live on Facebook for his friends to watch, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Days before his suicide, Bowdy was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault, and posted a $100,000 bond.

I don't know about facebook being for those who can't face reality ( it is a catchy rhyme at the least ) , but Facebook does have a problem with live streaming, and needs to consider removing live stream from their platform as it obviously can not be monitored in real time, and takes weeks to remove a video.  The poor girl who first decided to live stream her death has slowly created a new trend for those dealing with suicidal tendencies / depression. Some things are obviously out of Facebooks control such as suicide , but they should consider that if they cant provide at least a window of 24 hrs to review a video before it gets posted " live " then perhaps they should just remove the feature flat out, so that such traumatizing events do not go viral and ends up providing click bait for facebook to profit off of.

Quote
News of an elderly Korean lady being struck to the ground by a Caucasian woman on the streets of Los Angeles is going viral.

It has been reported to be the first incident for a Korean in the United States to be attacked since Donald Trump's presidency. 

According to Joongang Ilbo, a Korean-American who witnessed the entire scene posted the news on her Facebook page.  According to the witness, an elderly Korean woman was walking on the street when all of a sudden, a Caucasian woman came up to her yelling, "White power," knocked the elderly lady to the ground, and took off.

The startled old woman injured her head after hitting the ground.  Fortunately, a person nearby ran after the racist woman and she was arrested by police.


yay i got to copy n paste this one

so basically this poor Korean woman was assaulted by some nut job, but here is the Facebook twist, this time not to highlight suicide or the like ,  but more click bait for Facebook to now monopolize on other peoples injuries and do what with it ? Oh how about blame Donald Trump !  Simple minded people twisting violence to suit a political agenda at the expense of the victim, how much do you want to bet that the person who posted this photo,  barely did anything afterwards to help the poor woman.

The poster probably is also waiting for some kind of peace prize award for posting the photo as well.
