Is Taking "Selfie" Photos At Funerals, Memorial Services Acceptable?

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

Smartphones are everywhere and now people are using that easy access to post what's known as "funeral selfies". There's even a Tumblr blog dedicated to them.

"Selfies" are being snapped before and after memorial services, by what was called in one article, the young and seemingly clueless.

We saw one that read "love my hair today. Hate why I'm dressed up. #Funeral."

Some argue that grief should be kept quiet, but others say its cathartic to grieve on social media.
