#SPSM chats about leaked #FacebookManual on #suicide and #NSSI #LiveStream, 5/28/17, 9pCT.

#SPSM chats about Facebook’s leaked internal manual on moderating live stream of suicide and self-harm, 5/28/17, 9pCT.

#SPSM-ers have recently been consulted about several live streamed suicide attempts and deaths (streamed via Facebook Live). Additionally, @DocForeman appeared in Mashable, to discuss these guidelines. Due to the emergence of this issue in the media just this week, the planned chat topic was rescheduled.

The ability to broadcast a suicide attempt or death has never been more accessible for the general public. While this has happened on other social media platforms in the past, now that this is happening on the most commonly used social media platforms the likelihood is that witness a suicide attempt or death is likely to become an increasingly common social phenomenon.

Join our #SPSM chat by watching our livestream, as well as participating in the conversation on Twitter. We will be grappling with this issue, and invite the wisdom of our #SPSM network in that process on Sunday.
