I lost my dad recently and have chosen to follow certain profiles which help me relate better to the grief I am experiencing. However I find it quite intrusive that I am targeted with suggested content that by no choice of my own tries to lean into this and sometimes with content that is extremely triggering and dangerous when you’re in a dark place around loss. If I feel like this, I begin to think how much damage this creates for others that are looking for information they trust around their own losses too. I believe that choosing to follow content on this topic vs. having it pushed into your face when you’re not looking for it or trust it are extremely different scenarios.
