According to new research at the University of Bradford in the U.K., exposure via social media to images and videos of violent news events can trigger PTSD-like symptoms…“Social media has enabled violent stories and graphic images to be watched by the public in unedited, horrific detail,” said study leader Dr. Pam Ramsden. “Watching these events and feeling the anguish of those directly experiencing them may impact our daily lives.”

Too much violence, disaster, wretched distress,
Can shrivel the psyche, and crank up the stress.
