Is Social Media Making People Callous?

Earlier this week I hear the heartbreaking story of a teen who assaulted by a group of other teen and stabbed to death. He was was only sixteen years old. The reason for the stabbing was that he had walked another teen’s girlfriend home.

The worst part about this incident is, instead of trying to help many stood by and videotaped the incident. We have a generation who are more interested in getting an incident on video rather than helping someone in need of help. When did we become a society where all that matters is to get something on social media. If this is what the future hold, then the future looks bleak. It is so sad that this youngster lost his life in this manner.
