Social media has quickly gained hundreds of millions of audiences through the characteristics of big data, algorithm technology, information fission, and precise interaction as the new media rapidly rises. However, due to the lack of media literacy, the phenomenon of vulnerable individuals being targeted by online attacks is common. It is crucial to improve the media literacy of internet users. This article compares two social media incidents and the relevant data one week after the incidents occurred. It analyzes trends in media information, the volume of media coverage, the distribution of information sources, word count statistics, and the overall amount of information. The problems such as infringing on the reputation of others, the weak sense of social responsibility, the violation of news ethics, and the lack of media literacy were analyzed. Furthermore, solutions were proposed from the perspective of respecting the dignity of others, including ethical news practices and enhancing the identification of media infringements.
