Jewish funeral home in Edison, NJ

Social media is huge right now, no one needs to be reminded of that. It can be a way to announce a family death or to spread other such news. If a family member passes away and you are having to plan services with a Jewish funeral home in Edison, NJ, you might wonder what you should or shouldn’t do around social media accounts. Here are a few suggestions from the professionals.

First, don’t feel like you have to rush to make an announcement on social media once a loved one has passed away. You need to talk to your close family members first and spread the word in person and by phone to those who deserve to hear the news firsthand. Many people wait until the obituary is prepared and posted on the funeral home website. You can share that with social media followers so you can spread the word further about the death, the upcoming services, and so on.

Another thing you could do, perhaps after the services, is share some images and memories to social media. It can be a tasteful way to eulogize and memorialize your loved one to others who knew them and know you. You could look through examples of good ways to do that before you post.

If you have passwords and access to your loved one’s social media accounts, you might want to announce their death on those accounts through the obituary link so friends they have that you don’t know are aware. You don’t have to go that route, but it can be a nice thing to do to reach more people. You will want to close down their accounts as well once the announcement is released, if you choose to announce in that manner. You don’t want anyone hacking their account and taking advantage of their name once they are gone.
