Grief support

Using social media for support

With the society being highly tech savvy and practically always online, it has opened up new portals for people to mourn for or remember their loved one, and also to show care and support for those who experienced the same situation as they had. There are now online memorial pages such as Facebook and HeavenAddress, where you can use it as a mode to announce the death of your loved one, and friends and family can come together to pay tribute or celebrate his/her life. With this memorial pages, you can seek comfort from the support messages or condolence messages left by them to make grieving more tolerable. Though social media sites make it easier for you to connect with people who care for you and the deceased, it is still not able to replace the face-to-dace connection and support that you will need when grieving.“
