First off, is very sad when you hear of anyone who passes away from such a tragic accident. We wish his family and everyone close to him all the best in this tough time.
What I would like to say is that his death has no significant impact to the many facebookers or twitter followers out there. I may be doing the same thing here, by gratuitously speaking on his death nearly a week past, but I digress.
The point is that people have no tie to Paul Walker at all, yet feel the need to post and repost to share the news, which is actually devastating and personal to the select few in his family. Why do we as a society when we have the opportunity to say something, feel like we need to share other peoples loss only to get Retweets and Facebook likes.
Maybe this is just the standard today and we have to accept it, like we discussed before maybe privacy is dead. There are people learning things about people close to them secondhand, and the personal touch of face-to-face is long gone. Would you appreciate learning your brother had died from a retweet from your friends, co-workers, sister’s twitter account? I guess privacy is dead and I don’t see it coming back …..R.I.P.
