From online forums to community groups, research and knowledge show that people are more likely to commit crime and use the reserved language online on a personal basis, especially when it is anonymous computer. A new research, published in the Social Science and Personal Science magazine, shows that people are not as responsible for a non-compliant language on digital platforms and that victims suffer less "damage" when words are put directly to humans.
"Many of us are surprised when people like Milo Yiannopoulos and # 39; trying to harass people on Twitters, then go to the TV and say they do not have digital words;"said Curtis Puryear of the University of South Florida, the main author of the study.
"Our data shows that Yiannopoulos shows some of us; come to a certain extent,"said Puryear.We expect that people are not as dangerous as invasion communication in some digital settings and their; Responding with fewer attacks. This could reduce our assessment of the importance of the experiences of victims of online harassment."
Puryear and Joseph Vandello confirmed human responses to ideas and negative situations through four investigations that responded to responses to harmful ideas in a personalized and diverse online environment.
In one study with 270 students, people saw a "cock" picture, with the "Get back to your mother's cock", in one of three situations: face to face; online with social information such as names and pictures or online with some social information.
In a further study of 283 participants, the participants read the woman's statement that fought the infrastructural memories and participated in a negative reference to the forum online with some social information or a public event.
Throughout each inspection, people expressed more concerns and answers to negative ideas that were personally expressed than those that were written in the digital environment.
When comparing digital environments, they found mixed results. More social information from photo names has given more answers to inspiring ideas. But although there are known people, the authors of the survey found their first evidence that a lecture is not so fearful in the digital context.
Suggestions that help people to identify as individuals can be harassed in the online environment, and Puryear considers. The lack of "personalization" can spoil social signs that tell people that someone is tolerant, and that a spectator is less likely to feel angry or angry; acting against the victim.
Another part of the response of mixed ideas can come from the potential to be described as "non-compliant", through a majority of reports about internet harassment or from; disturbing online harassment.
When expressing moral and social features online, can people change their ideas and begin to show levels that are similar to personal situations? The results are based on how we will; creating our online communities, says Puryear and Vandello.
The creation of digital platforms can be used by users; attack and support access levels to & # 39; Increasingly reducing our responses to tolerance.
"But if our levels and objectives start to show that digital communications are very important, then the difference between how we respond to the physical and corporate domains can be extinct,"said Puryear.
