One such incentive is taken by Facebook to show support for Paris. It activated the safety check feature where people in France can let friends know they are safe after the Paris attacks. Facebook users are also showing support by overlying the France flag on their profile pictures. It is a way to show support for the country in this time of distress.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a message in his own profile stating his support for the victims. He mentioned in his post, “Violence like this has no place in any city or country in the world.”
The world is showing support in their own ways. Queensland’s French community will be holding a rally in Brisbane, Australia to show the support. Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said in a statement, “Tonight we will be having the colors of blue, white and red on the Story Bridge as well as City Hall.”
Celebrities and sports stars have also come to show support after the Paris attacks. Kevin Seraphin, the NBA player who has a strong personal connection with the country, said, “It’s kind of sad, because… there’s nothing you can do about it,” adding, “Think about how some people went to see a soccer game and went to see a [concert] and you don’t really expect that. It’s just scary, now people are scared to go out and just do anything. I couldn’t believe… killing us as a human. For sure, we don’t want to see people living like that.”
