    As a purely theoretical postulate, elemental dynamics suggesting suicide is epidemic or pandemic enough to warrant its own branch of social media monitoring, what would happen where it seemed any Facebook user appeared to feel something or someone had diminished them to nothing…and they felt no one was listening as somehow such reduction was the whole point of others in their interpersonal activities; would any nature of things/third-party influences be addressed, for example in cases of bullying or extortion or other abuse, or would a Facebook poster found to be confronting bona fide wrong things just be labelled a “nut” while anything/anyone in the wrong was left to flower on?

    I ask because many seem to know what will happen to posters of this or that matter on social media, but very little seems to be easily available on what happens if institutionalized monitors, and especially authorities monitors report to, uncover truth behind “worrisome” user’s postings. There have been places in history where times were depicted as halcyon, but only if one were not one of the many “less mentally strong” some “unionized” lands were plagued with…comrade. Nothing against preventing a large problem of suicide, just wondering what happens after “nuts” are labelled and dealt with.

    Thank you for another great article, cheers!
