While social media sometimes included direct criminal elements itself, sometimes it included factors that led people to crime. Some criminals stated in their testimony that they committed murder after being influenced by social media or joined a terrorist organization through social media. In general, it has been discussed whether the media, but in recent years, social media causes crime, leads people to crime, and whether there are criminal elements in social media.
