Death on Facebook

DEATH ON FACEBOOK

What would you like to happen to your Facebook profile page after your death?

If someone close to you died, what would you like to happen to their profile page?

 

A collaboration with Kent Cam, Isabel Valdés Marín and Jón Helgi Hólmgeirsson, the project "Death on Facebook" provides a design proposal that provides social media platforms with one solution for handling the deaths of users.

 

This design proposal focuses on the importance of the ritual of saying goodbye for those left behind after a death and the ethics of handling a deceased person's online identity and digital material.
