Study: Social media can act as a early warning medium to avoid suicide tragedies
There have been numerous cases of online bullying but a recent study reveals that social media can also behave as an early warning system to avoid such tragic accidents.
A team from the Brigham Young University studied online tweets put up from all the 50 states during the last quarter.
Filtering through a large number of tweets, their calculations hunt down immediate examination of suicide, and additionally magic words and expressions connected with known hazard variables, for example harassing.
Christophe Giraud-Carrier, a BYU workstation researcher and one of the study's seven researchers said, "With social media, kids now and again say things that they aren't stating out uproarious to a mature person or companion in individual."
They considered 37,717 really disturbing tweets from 28,088 special clients for whom some area data was accessible.
As they report in the diary Crisis, each one state's degree of self-destructive tweets positively related with its real suicide rate.
Twitter is a fairly easy platform for this sort of examination, where most tweets are accessible to everyone and even allows responses.
