Pre internet death notices in the paper were the way a family could share the loss of a loved one and the details of the funeral. Today a social media post can convey the same message instantly and be analysed re shared and commented upon. Unfortunately (and not accepting this as ok) it means a private moment can quickly become an unfiltered public moment that people feel the need to comment or be curious about only further fuelling the news cycle. I do believe your article raises an interesting point not easily solved -how do we encourage society collectively to be more ethical, empathetic and understanding that just because something is shared on social media rather than a notice in the paper that it makes it ok to intrude on a deeply life altering moment. No easy answer just articles like these that will hopefully jolt people back to a better sense of reality.
