Technology has done us wonders. And then it’s also doing the worst. The 50-day blue whale challenge consisting of 50 tasks carefully designed to prime its player into ultimately committing suicide is a crime beyond comprehension. With no physical presence required and a mere virtual interface, Philip Budeikin, one of the sickest minds in the psychology/tech space managed to put together this game targeting pre-teens and teens to ultimately kill themselves. Below is a list of the 50 said tasks.
Awareness is key. I’ve put this together with an attempt to educate those who are unaware of this game and its effects. I urge you to keep your eyes peeled, watch out for your family, friends, kids around you to ensure they aren’t affected by such virtual crimes. Sometimes, all they need is to be listened to and protected, even when they don’t think they need any help.
