What Happens When You Live Stream A Crime

With the rise of social media, the desire to film private moments of our lives is growing rapidly. The increase in social media use has led to a large jump in crimes being projected on live streams since the mid 2010s. Live streaming is the use of an Internet enabled device, like a smart phone or computer, to broadcast video in real-time to an audience over the Internet. These videos can be seen by anyone who has access to the user's platform. Sometimes, whether on purpose or not, individuals live stream a crime for all to see.
