AbstractLive streaming seems to be taking the tech world by storm. Content delivered to the palm of one’s hand at the exact moment it is occurring somewhere else in the world. It adds another dimension to the user experience and it allows us to feel connected to the event or the occurrence. It is a raw video feed that transports users to the exact moment and location in which something is happening. As of right now, it is the closet technology to teleportation. No longer do we as consumers have to wait for the news feed to come out after the matter. We can watch it immediately, in real time. This type of raw video has power. It is completely unfiltered; however, there are cases in which that video should be. With this, there have been far too many times in which violent acts are completed over live stream. This paper looks to answer the question: if the increase in popularity and use of live stream technologies has also increased violence?
