    Actor Robin Williams speaks to reporters at a press conference for "Campaign For a New G.I. Bill" in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Sunday, June 22, 2008.

    Fans of Robin Williams are grieving online -- on Twitter, on the actor's Facebook page, and on the Reddit AMA the actor hosted last year, where suicide prevention resources can now be found.

    PandoDaily reported that Reddit edited the AMA page from Williams' chat with his fans last year in the hours following the actor's apparent suicide at his Tiburon home.

    The tech website gave Reddit credit for the "small but incredibly sensitive gesture" of tastefully adding a link to suicide prevention hotline information on the Williams AMA page.

    News that Williams, 63, apparently ended his own life broke late Monday afternoon.
