I think one of the greatest struggles we have yet to find a solution to is how to deal with death on social networks.
If someone dies in real life, we want closure. We want to go visit them at a funeral. We want to talk with others that are morning their loss. But we don’t get that on xanga or any other social network. I read that Facebook can set up a memorial of your site but people can’t comment on it. Here is the link: Link
But if you think about it, there is no closure. There is no way to tell everyone we are dead. This has some advantages because some people on xanga leave really nasty comments when people die. They make fun of them and their family.
I think I would still want people to be able to comment on my passing.
I would want people to be able to say, “I <3ed Dan,” “I thought Dan was dickish,” “robofthesky.”
I want a xanga memorial if I die.
Would you want a xanga memorial if you died?
