Amanda Todd 15-
A man in an online chat room talked her into flashing him. Later he contacted her and said if she didn't "put on a show" for him, he would release her pictures (he knew where she lived, school, who her friends and family were, etc). Everyone saw them. She got depressed, anxiety and began experimenting with drugs and alcohol. She tried to change schools many times, but the girls from the first school came to beat her up. She tried to commit suicide by drinking bleach but it was prevented. Before she was successful of committing suicide, she wrote her story on paper and uploaded the video to youtube and it went viral. Her body was found in her bedroom later in the month.

A survey was conducted and found that 53% of participants said social media sites had changed their behavior, while 51% of these said the change had been negative.
"This problem has definitely gained recent attention," says Dr. Rauch. "We know that many people on social media sites often present idealized versions of their lives, leading others to make upward social comparisons, which can lead to negative emotions."
