Correct, in cases where we have God forbid anti Semitec incidents, we need to inform the public of such threats.

Also on the other end of the spectrum it's critical that we don't take isolated incidents and make it like they are full blown anti simetic attacks and scare everybody.

And so we have the same situation regarding drug overdoses and suicide that are often swept under the rug and ignored and the mental health issues in the community.

The need for individual and the family in the communities privacies are paramount.

Gossip has no place whatsoever. But also there is genuine concern and fear in these circumstances and these trying times.

As others mentioned, jersey City.

Sorry but we canít have it both ways. Social media has turned us into something less than human beings. When what I ate in which restaurant and my latest vacation pics with the wife and or kids becomes everyone elseís business( including on DDF), I have taken what used to be a reshus hayachid, my private life, and deliberately turned it into a reshus harabim. And that creates a sense of entitlement- people feel that they have a right to know what is going on in a reshus harabim. We have taken מה טובו אהליך יעקב, the concept of privacy in our homes and lives that Klal Yisrael once excelled in and discarded it for social media, and the secular concept of putting everything out there in the reshus harabim. Well, thatís what people do in a reshus harabim. They rubberneck.

We are definitely doing it to ourselves. Itís hard to imagine that 15 years ago the world was a place of human interaction and expectation of privacy. The next generation will end up where China is now. A billion people glued to phones and social media with nary a shred of humanity left. When someone is mortally wounded everyone takes out the phones instead of going to help.

The farfrumt guys without smartphones will be the only ones left with their humanity still intact...

There's a huge race by the various frum 'news' outlets to get the scoop. In the process they trample on basic human dignity and decency. And this was an issue long before jersey city.

When I had my accident a few weeks ago, there were so many stories going around whatsapp I couldn't keep track of them.

It was, shall we say, interesting to find out from a fwd that I had gotten arrested for driving with a suspended license.

I'm so sorry.

But pretty sure when the first words "fake News" was said, we all thought that nobody was shot and killed.

I get it that the details are grossly wrong. Journalism at it's worst. But Fake news ? no way !

in light of Jersey City a fellow chasidic jew was shot killed. True story ! Sad and scary.

Again BDE, and sorry.
i'm also not sure why this is earning #fakeNews ?

i agree in general that its more then painful & crazy how wrong ppl can be trying to be the first & best detailed so they're so careless, like by the JCshooting when ppl spread shtisem about gold & fr"m etc. or that mrs. ferancz is dead before even 1 of the police entered the grocery, but i don't see in this case it should be totally fake news ?                                         
 @Dan which part of @KollelNiyes's msg. have you found incorrect he didn't mentioned it as a #HateCrime like others did,   that he wrote "a chabad ruv"?

The Jewish #ExtremeFakeNews sites, Whatsapp groups, and social media accounts are just VILE and SHAMEFUL!
"VILE" would be accurate for some of the ones I seen.
