  • Outrage culture

    Outrage culture often involves calling for public shaming or punishment of those deemed responsible for the offense, and can result in online harassment, cancel culture, and the suppression of free speech. The term is often used to critique the excessive and performative nature of public outrage, which can be fueled by social media echo chambers and a desire for attention or moral superiority. Some argue that outrage culture can stifle meaningful debate and lead to a culture of fear and self-censorship, while others see it as a necessary form of social activism and accountability.

    Outrage culture can have a significant impact on online communities, where the anonymity and distance afforded by the internet can make it easier for individuals to engage in extreme forms of outrage and harassment. Online communities that are particularly susceptible to outrage culture include social media platforms, discussion forums, and gaming communities. The viral nature of social media can also amplify and escalate outrage, leading to a rapid spread of anger and condemnation. Moderators of online communities often struggle to balance the need for free expression with the need to protect users from harassment and abuse, and may need to develop policies and strategies to address the negative effects of outrage culture.
