Anger and Internet in Japan, the Law and other Social Sciences
People’s anger has also given rise to controversy on the internet in Japan and is often linked with the issue of “flaming”. Thus, this topic focuses on the expression and sharing of anger on the internet in Japan by providing examples. It also covers the results of large-scale studies that have been conducted in recent years and analyzes the traits of those who participate in flaming. We will cover the problems that go hand-in-hand with expression of anger on the internet in terms of “Social sharing of emotion (Rime, 2007)”. Through these arguments we will list the results of studies done in Japan that ask what should be done to control anger. In addition, we will also discuss what we should be focusing on when expressing emotions of anger and our experiences on the internet.
