My best friend passed away suddenly last year. His FB account is still there and his friends and family still post to it, tag him in pictures, etc. To my knowledge, his widow didn't have it "memorialized" or whatever FB does. He still shows up in my friend list and everything he ever posted is still there and accessible. It's actually kind of comforting to have that around. Sometimes a photo or video I hadn't seen of him will pop up from a friend or relative. I just hope it never gets hacked. That would be really unsettling to have my dead friend spamming everybody with dick pill links.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: grinding_journalist: miss diminutive: Since I plan to download my consciousness onto the web when I die, I'm getting a kick...

Counting on this as well. I don't think it's unreasonable to think this is a possibility 60-80 years from now, given that we're imaging individual molecules and creating room temp superconductors.

That's kind of like taking a self portrait and declaring immortality. Sure, one day you may be able to copy your brain to software, but you'll still be in your body.. dying.

It's so weird that so many people just don't get that. Stupid, delusional mind/body dualism.

Mt friend died 2 months ago and we had to memorialize his account because his crazy girlfriend at the time had his password and was deleting comments that were harshly directed towards her. After being memoriolized it cant be logged in to and his profile wont show up in a public search.

One of our friends died a couple years ago, and after a couple of months, Facebook starts automatically trying to convince you to "reconnect" with the deceased.

It's pretty depressing to be constantly reminded that "it's been a while" since you last spoke to your dead friend.

I had a friend pass away young, 22, recently some company keeps tagging him in spam ads. It's robo posting and he keeps showing up in my news feed. He's become the Billy Mays of my facebook wall.

As with anything else in your life, she suggests the best thing to do is discuss your wishes with family and friends, but most importantly write it down

I'd like someone clever to periodically post updates from beyond the grave and create events I'll be haunting.
