Facebook Will Attempt To Stop Live-Stream Suicides

Facebook announced that they will integrate real-time suicide prevention tools into Facebook Live according to USA Today. They will add live-chat support from NSPL (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) and Crisis Text Line through messenger.

Public suicide with technology has made it available to be seen by many people.

According to Dan Reidenberg, the executive director of Save.org, who advises Facebook, there have been seven known cases since live streaming became available, not all of them on Facebook. Facebook spokesman William Nevius refused to say how many people have broadcast on Facebook Live as they have taken their own lives. – Jessica Guynn, USA TODAY
