Death and social media

By Published on .

A while ago, Nader Ashway, who runs New York agency Ashway Group, mused on his Marketing Thingy blog about death and social media, and how the two might converge upon his demise (not for a loooong time, Nader!). In this update about when “you've gone to the great mashup in the sky,” Ashway cites new wrinkles on a morbid subject, particularly a service that lets you post a message or video on Facebook after you die; another that predicts what your next (and perhaps last) bit of social output would be on Twitter; and lastly, a service that allows you to post, organize and share photos, memories and writings to Facebook or an area of its site. This one's not just for the dead, apparently.
