Outpouring of support on social media after Boston Marathon explosions

The social media equivalent of wearing a black arm band or a black veil at a funeral has evolved on social media. Users have been taking a photo, overlaying it with text, and adding a hashtag #prayforboston on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Take a look at the latest digital condolences. Please share yours, too.

It's a minimal way people have used social media to acknowledge, to honor, and to mourn the tragic event at the Boston Marathon.
