Why Do We Like To Share Tragedy?

As this post (http://techcrunch.com/2013/07/06/are-we-helping/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Techcrunch+%28TechCrunch%29&utm_content=Google+UK) mentions, many people tend to share information about tragic events like accidents, bombings, tsunamis, etc and the question is "why"?

Is it just to inform others? Is it to express our sympathy or solidarity?
