For those of you that post on social media “Miss you grandad”, “happy birthday mum” and things along those lines when they’d never see that post, why?

  1. In regards to posting about missing dead people or animals: I don’t do it myself, but I recognize it as a coping mechanism. These people are making posts about missing the people they’re posting about dearly, so they mention them as in their thoughts as a way to deal with the grief they feel.

    Hope that makes sense.

  2. While I don’t do it, I think for some people, it’s to help keep their memory alive. To remind others who would have cared about that person that it would have been their birthday. I don’t remember the birthdays of every single person that I’m friends with, or even all of my relatives, but it’s sometimes nice to be reminded of and think of them on what would have been their day.
