While France is coming to terms with this weekend's terrorist attacks in Paris, the world has joined forces to show its support for the European country.
On Friday evening, a group of Islamist terrorists targeted Parisians in a series of coordinated gun and bomb attacks in the French capital.
While key leaders are discussing hot topics like security, refugees and stepping up military efforts in Syria, other people around the world have focused on promoting unity.
"ISIS would like to create a mood in Europe which favors extremism and xenophobia. They don't like the image of western European countries behaving in a responsible and welcoming way to Muslims who are fleeing them and other violence in the Middle East," Sir Nigel Sheinwald, former ambassador to the United States of America told CNBC Monday.
"We just need to make sure we react as we did react to Charlie Hebdo, as we did react after the bombings in London 10 years ago. We react in a way, which is inclusive, and which keeps our Muslim communities—like us—trying to move towards a more united approach to these things. …We must keep that in mind at all costs."
From social media posts to lighting up landmarks in the French tricolore, CNBC takes a look at how the world has supported France.
Across Twitter and Instagram, images, hashtags and powerful words are being spread across the platforms. While "Pray for Paris" is one of the top trending topics, many users are keen to raise awareness of conflict and terrorism across the globe, including tweets on "#PrayforSyria" and about the bombings in Beirut.
Snapchat launched a "Pray for Paris" story on its live channel, whereby individuals shared images of memorial services across the globe.
Facebook is allowing users to show their support for Paris, with a "French flag filter" on their profile pictures. However, Facebook users aren't the only ones wearing the tricolor with pride…
Over the weekend, the world showed its solidarity for Paris, the "City of Light", by lighting up their own monuments in the French flag's colors. Landmarks included the One World Trade Center in New York, the Sydney Opera House, London's Tower Bridge and Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil.
In January, Paris was shook up by the Charlie Hebdo attacks, but what many remember is social media's response with powerful sketches and cartoons, to express the world's unity against terrorism.
Now, a similar movement has occurred from a piece designed by French graphic designer, Jean Jullien.
The "Peace for Paris" symbol went viral overnight. Not only did social media spread the image, but now the sketch is being used on clothing, hand-drawn posters and at vigils worldwide.
In France, safety was a top priority for several tech companies, including AirBnB, who contacted Parisian hosts, asking if they had any extra space to take in those stranded at the French capital.
Google made international calls to France temporarily free on their Hangouts platform, as did Skype, with domestic and international calls to landline and mobiles in France. Verizon and Sprint did similar services.
Facebook rolled out its "Safety Check" for people to let friends and family know they were okay in places of danger.
On top of this, U.S. and U.K. television networks have pulled certain episodes temporarily in the wake of the attacks, out of sensitivity and respect. Shows include CBS' "Supergirl" and "NCIS: Los Angeles", and ITV's "Jekyll and Hyde."
