The Role of Social Media in Promoting Gang Culture
27 Sep 2018
There have been nearly 100 murders in London alone this year as a result of knife and gun crime. Social media is increasingly coming under the spotlight as gangs use these platforms to incite violence. This session explores how social media and advertising is indirectly promoting gang culture and how gang members use various content platforms and channels to recruit, instil fear and groom children. While social media platforms work tirelessly with law enforcement agencies to identify and remove any gang-related content, should they be doing more and how can advertisers use their power to help stop this worrying increase in violence on the capital’s streets?
This show surpassed my expectations for quality and quantity of attendees. A great speaker line up with quality insightful presentations that will not disappoint you.
