In our EndNotes column today, we answered a question whether it's appropriate to send condolences on Facebook. The answer: It depends. For teens and other big Facebook users, sure. For those in generations who expect a handwritten card, no.
After she proofread my story, newsroom colleague Kimberly pointed out how weird it is on Facebook to click “like” when people share bad news, such as a death in the family. Agreed. Facebook needs a “sorry” button, perhaps.
How do you respond to someone's sad news on Facebook?
