Social media has desensitized us to death and tragedy, most people can use anything for clout and engagement.
Here are 4 insensitive reactions on social media after a death:
1. Not waiting for the family or a source close to the family to post the news of the death
You shouldn’t be the one breaking the news or confirming a death except if you were at the scene of the incident and you are trying to contact the family and friends.
2. Not verifying the news of the death before posting it
A death is neither a gossip nor gist, so before you post such information, make sure it’s 100% true. Wait for a verified news source.
3. Posting pictures and videos of dead bodies
You shouldn’t be posting any pictures or videos of their dead bodies. Honour the dead and preserve their memory.
4. Victim Blaming
You don’t have to say things like, “why was he/she in such a place? Or other questions. Don’t try to blame the need for their death, it’s insensitive.
