    If someone in your family died of a sudden and tragic death would you post it on Facebook?

    When something traumatic happens such as a death in the family, do you prefer to mourn privately or do you feel that it's appropriate to post it on Facebook?

    I will not post it on facebook except of course if the person is public figure and the kind of death or killing needs public awareness for security purpose or just to raise an alarm.

    You never can tell, the killer might be looking for more meat to consume.

    Everyone mourns differently. I don't feel it's inappropriate but personally I wouldn't want to post it since I prefer to mourn privately. There are many reasons to post though....to gain needed sympathy and support, to memorialize the loved one, to help oneself to accept it and other reasons. Also, it can help others who have experienced traumatic loss to relate and not feel alone in what they're going through.

    Anyone posting should be careful though not to post too much personal info and consider also that there are trolls who enjoy posting mean replies.

    Absolutely not.  Why in the world would someone want to post something like this for public consumption!  The death of a loved one is a very personal, private matter and should be kept that way out of respect to the deceased.

    I wouldn't even consider posting it there.

    This is a pet peeve of mine! We live 2000 miles from our core family and twice in the last year we found out about a death in the family through Facebook; my father-in-law and a brother-in-law. Because of the time difference, we hadn't been called yet the twenty-ish members got on their smart phones within minutes of the death.

    Even the news services respect family privacy; it would be nice if our technology addicted family members would too. There should be some etiquette regarding social media and this tops the list.

    Only if I were an insensitive idiot. Absolutely not. Never ! In my opinion, there is nothing more private than mourning the passing of a loved one. But everything is possible !
