Social media in the afterlife?

Don't we get too much of it here and now? you might ask yourself.

But what of the afterlife, when we have gone on and left our spouses/significant others with some scraps of paper or links to places they may not have been.

skeleton-hand-writing The subject matter of death spooks many people so this new website called FarAwayFish will surely give many of you the creeps. Basically, it’s a service that will send emails to your loved ones after you kick the bucket. It will also publish a profile page with your biography and share your wisdom which you captured while still connected to your mortal coil.

Paisano has an interesting post about FarAwayFish that provides an email service after we have gone on. He also comes up with some worthwhile suggestions to create a service to help someone manage our online interactions, at least make them available in some user friendly form, after we have moved on.

Morbid? No, real planning for the future.
