Are people becoming more hurtful and more likely to be abusive or just simply mean to others on social media platforms?

With the ease of access to the internet it appears people are now more likely than ever to be openly rude, mean or abusive to others online in response to someone's post or opinion. It often seems excessive in reaction and not something you'd expect someone to do in person to another, especially a stranger.

Yes people are aggressive on social media. I beleive it is because of the remoteness of the person, they cant see the people reading their post, they cant see the effect so to get a reaction people speak their mind. HONESTY.

More honest? Maybe. But also less time spent in thought, about how our words can hurt. I understand that tact is sometimes being PC, but sometimes it is also being kind. Fine line between too much tact and too little.

We are opportunistic by nature, so why would we back down if there is no direct threat?
In short, yes we are becoming crueler - but only because there is les...

Costas thank you for your message and I could't agree more. Indeed with the lack of face to face now being the norm it is becoming crueler with people interactions. Take care and enjoy your day. B.
