Do You Really Need Attention That Much?

    This is so so important! Especially today of all days, when something this horrific happens so close to home.

    Very well written. It’s a strange world we live in where everyone with a smart phone feels it’s necessary they share information. Sometimes it’s also the news outlets’ fault as they ask for material and information from people in the area. But I agree it’s insensitive sharing photos of injured people or describing it in detail. I think we should first try and help if we can and then think about how we’d feel if it was our loved ones lying on the ground and being photographed.

    I couldn’t agree more. I love that people are marking themselves self on social media and I have reached out to close family and friends that work in London to ask if they are safe. BUT when watching the news today all I could see was clips of people with their phones out taking videos of the ingured and the police cars and ambulances. I feel like sometimes, some of us, can loose a little bit of our humanity in times of terror and disruction.

    This post is so so accurate. This attack is actually the first I’ve seen on Twitter in which people are being asked to be responsible and not share photos or videos of the scenes. I think it’s incredible, and it just worries me about all the people on the scene who WOULD take the photos in the first place

    This really summed up a lot of thoughts I had while seeing reactions to what happened in Westminster unfold, then hearing people talk about it at work and at home. Sometimes we need to learn to be quiet and take the time to listen to what’s happening, to understand before we share and to be conscious of what and why we’re sharing it. I hate that suffering has become a spectacle, a live action movie, and that so many people are trying to put themselves at the centre of it. It’s not always about you.

    Well said. I generally try and avoid social media after something like this happens because so many people try and make it about themselves, or use it to push some political agenda. It’s really not that hard to keep quiet and not use someone’s tragedy for your own personal gain.
    I sometimes feel sorry for celebrities and those in the public eye at times like this as well – they get criticised for sending a ‘hopes and prayers’ type message and criticised for not saying anything. I think we all need to learn to accept that silent does not equal uncaring or unaffected.

    This pretty much sums up my thoughts on social media during critical events. Honestly, I do not understand it! Why tweet a picture of an injured person instead of helping? Why suddenly become a live journalist just because you are close? It just really pisses me off. Another thing that annoys me, are those attention seeking people who mark themselves as safe even though they are nowhere near the incident. And let’s not forget those people who were supposed to be in London and tell everyone everywhere that they were supposed to be there. London is big. The chances of someone being there at that exact time is so slim. Sometimes people just need to realize it is not about them!
