I saw a tweet yesterday from someone using Newsle to get headline news about people they know. Their tweet congratulated a woman on her “article.” The article? A video tribute to her. She died this past weekend.
Are we getting so careless that we don’t even bother to read what we share in social media anymore? That we’d actually share an obit and mistakenly congratulate the person who died on being mentioned in the news? I’m sickened by this and yet again reminded the importance of paying attention. In social media. In life.
Are you guilty of the quick retweet, repin, and share without checking what you’re passing along?
How can we change our social media (bad) habits and be more mindful of what we share?
