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.
My last though was to go online, f*** the computer and all that, i would be washed in tears!
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 !

Do you post your new articles to Facebook?I post some of mine and then delete them after twenty-four hours. Is Facebook a good place to market your new articles?

Some hubs don't show a thumbnail (my hubs don't) when posting to facebook, but some do.I don't know if Facebook is unable to recognize a photo on certain hub accounts or what, but I thought I'd let you know.

I just checked my traffic and have 1030 views from Facebook in the last 7 days. I always share my new hubs there and I think you will agree from my latest traffic figures that it has been well worthwhile doing this!

For example: a Hub about Obama being the AntiChrist? (Cause his name rhymes with Osama!) Do we have to flag these Hubs? (And see the sick joke starting elsewhere all over again.) Are these Hubs also partly responsible...
