YouTube Creators see a lot of sad times online
OK So here I am editing the Free Candy Van Video and I had Behind the Scenes Footage I found on my G+ That Google Auto Uploaded and Backed up.. SOOO I was Looking At the Video in a Open Window on my computer when I saw Bo Post His wife was in hospital then a few hours later that she had passed away.... WOW I am looking at her on my screen.. Sad just Sad... My heart goes out to Bo and as odd as it may sound someone I only Met in person once REALLY can have a effect on a person. The Social Media end makes it A lot more personal it seems and ANY Creator that Grows Subscribers, Likes, Friends online etc. It does present a issue... Do you "Like" the post... MY GOD that's a hard one you KNOW this person is at one of the most Challenging times possible and You don't really know if you should Comment or not... Especially if you are just some Random idiot like me that makes videos.
So What should you do?
To Comment or Like or NOT that is the Question... I say Comment just be careful depending on how well you know them... I have for instance told someone they were in My Prayers and Offended them... NOT wanting to in any way.. I felt Awful.. To "LIKE" The Status... Well... Use your own opinion But I 99% of the time will NOT "LIKE" a Sad Status... I do Comment because If we are connected I Care and dig them or I would not be connected in the first place!
This leaves me and this Video... Like I say I had the Behind the Scenes Footage and wanted to use it to send Bo... Yes its just Goofy Behind the Scenes and I hope that I in no way offend Bo by sending him this (AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT LIKING OR COMMENTING WHY DO I HANG THIS OUT THERE AT A TIME LIKE THIS??
I dunno... If I could see Video of My close friends and Family that have passed I would want that option and I want Bo to know that they impressed me and that for me Linda was a super nice person and I am Glad to have met them. My Thoughts and Prayers are with him!
