Shock Sites are websites designed to offend or startle the viewer. These sites usually feature pornographic, violent, offensive, proactive and scatological images or videos. Online, many use these sites as a social challenge or through Bait and Switch pranks in which people trick others into visiting the website. “Traditional” shock sites are intended to get an immediate reaction and generally fall into several categories, including pictures, video or viruses, in which the site crashes and potentially damages the visitor’s computer.
