VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — Violent videos from across the Lower Mainland are circulating on social media, showing brawls between young students.

Simon Fraser University professor Clint Burnham says with more students than ever before owning cellphones, when there’s a conflict or a fight, students don’t think twice about pulling out the phones and hitting record.

“Kids’ response to an act of minor or major kind of violence is to film it,” he says. “Maybe they’re acting in a way that technology encourages them, to use that lens, which is to upload that video.”

He says the use of social media has to be taken into consideration.

“When you see something on your phone, it’s much closer, it’s much more intimate, but also, all the sudden we are very aware that this is something other people can see. It’s not only persona, it’s also social,” he says.”

And sometimes, the reasons for sharing it are questionable.

Burnham says these videos could be used as posturing by students. He says they’re being used to boost their egos, assert their dominance, or to create a reputation for themselves.

“Posting a beating video to show how gangster we are, those are actions that are called for by the structure of social media,” he says.

He says this is an issue that is difficult for schools to address, as it’s hard to regulate the use of phones, as some classes and homework rely on using the internet.
