Hate Gone Viral tackles the challenges faced by society in dealing with the growing phenomenon of the proliferation of hate speech in new media. This phenomenon has created a “ Internet Hate Incubator” that has accelerated and heated hate speech to a boiling point. Facebook, YouTube and Twitter have become prime breeding grounds for hate groups, cyberbullying and terrorist recruiting cells, all hiding behind the protections offered by First Amendment protected speech. What can we do to stem the tide of hatred? What can parents do as their children are exposed to this steady stream of hatred in a world where there is no longer a barrier between the brick and mortar world of hatred and the safety of the home? Hate Gone Viral attempts to answer those questions and explains how the Internet Hate Incubator and the Social Hate Incubator are playing roles in the increase in hate speech and violence in our society.
