The scary trend of Internet Suicide Pacts continues to increase with at least 91 reported deaths in Japan alone. It seems that distraught individuals are drawn to others they meet online who are in similar states, and they gain strength in numbers... to the point where they commit suicide as a group.
Implications - It is a sad fact that many young people are trying to cut their lives short. The majority of the reported suicides are of people who are only in their 20s and 30s. The suicide sites that allow for people in similar states of mind to meet and support one another in their efforts is really becoming a growing concern.
