Posthumous Advance of the Day: Fret not, worriers of the social networking world — in the event of your untimely death, a new startup will allow you to keep your legacy going from beyond the grave.DeadSocial — which launches in beta today — taps into your Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts, and keeps a private calendar of messages that will be distributed on your networks when you die.
“There’s no reason why you should stop being able to communicate, tell people how you feel about them, after you’ve passed away,” says founder James Norris. “This is really a way to address death, not in a dark and sinister way, but to look at it from a more creative and a more technical perspective. … It’s a bit more fun.”
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I WANT THE OPPOSITE OF THIS.
When I die, I need at least ONE friend to outlive me so that they can shut down my facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc. (I guess this is presuming I die like, tomorrow? Because if I live a long and hearty life I don’t think these social networks will still be relevant. Which is the other problem with this whole venture as a business model)
Also since when did someone sit down and say, “You know what? No one’s really rebooted DEATH in a while. Let’s brainstorm some ways to make it seem more… FUN.”
HATE ALL OF YOU INVOLVED WITH THIS
I HOPE YOUR FACEBOOKS GET HACKED WHEN YOU DIE. AN ETERNITY OF HACKING. HOW IS THAT FOR FUN.wow lots of capslock on the blog today
