Perhaps more worryingly, CBS news reports on the Mystery of the accused shooter's missing Facebook. James Holmes was an "online ghost" with no apparent Facebook or other social media presence. "It's certainly unusual. Data suggests that 95 to 98 percent of people Holmes' age are on social media," Dr. Megan A. Moreno, of University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, told CBS News. As for that other 5- to 2 percent, Moreno, who has no connection to the case, highlighted a link between extreme Internet use — or lack of use — and depression."
Immediately after the event, the Red Cross recommended that survivors update their Facebook status to let friends and family know they were safe. Are we reaching a point where atypical patterns of internet use such as the lack of a Facebook presence will be used as one possible predictor of people who are isolated from normal social functions and may be at risk for causing harm to themselves or others?"
