#SPSM chats about the #BlueWhaleGame, and other #suicide #urbanlegends, 9/10/17, 9pCT

SPSM chats about the “Blue Whale Challenge” and other suicide related urban legends, Sunday, 9/10/17, 9pCT. Read the press release from the American Association of Suicidology here.

Urban legends about suicide are nothing new. And, in the era of social media, our urban legends about suicide have morphed to a new medium (warning, this is NOT recommended reporting on suicide, and if you feel vulnerable, don’t click on this). In fact, you can find a LOT of debunked urban legends about suicide in one place…

Much like Dungeons and Dragons in the 1980s, angst about social media and suicide appear to be a predictable societal reaction to social activities adopted by and driven by the young.
