When I look back, what does this image actually means in the social architecture of media, why is it available? Does it educate or does it entertain? The social media commercial value is based on numbers of engagement of the content. It has been proven that negative material causes more responses. In that sense, supporting abusing/inappropriate content on the media creates economical benefits. Facebook is staging violence.
If we look back to history Colosseum - gladiator arena also was a social platform for entertainment with financial income, which used the act of violence for their benefits. It was organised by private figures(emperors) to gain popularity and love from society. This social scheme empowered the rich and used the suppressed groups of society.
Thinking about similarities between Facebook and Colosseum I question who is taking the weight of the gladiator in the system of social media...
Content moderators are sweating over for a little money to keep this system running. Besides looking at graphic violence all day, getting PTSD and ignoring their moral norms while checking the content, they also need to check-in and out when they go to the toilet. They are enslaved in the system.
