I read an article which talked about a recent assault on a mans wife because of Facebook complications. A man who supposedly posted a status over the anniversary of his mothers death was like by multiple friends except by his wife. Because she didn’t like the post, the man assaulted his wife causing a huge domestic violence case. It’s very surprising to see multiple overreact to social media complications which people then use to act upon in real life. I see multiple examples of people relating internet life to real life. Virtual worlds are easily able to become part of your own life, which is why many people fail to understand the difference between the two. When social media becomes to obsessive with someones life it can cause negative effects, and in this occasion violence.
