I just found this on Twitter, and I thought I’d share.
It’s good to see that people are taking notice of how the way in which we remember people is changing. It will probably be a while before the matter of how we cope with the death of somebody we’ve only ever known online comes up for discussion publicly. However, reading articles and watching videos like this gives me hope that the discussion will happen sooner rather than later.
Personally, I don’t use Facebook as my main avenue to remember Chris, because she didn’t use it, and so there’s no point for me. However, I use it to keep in touch with people who also knew her, and it’s vital in that way.
Have you used social media to memorialise in any way? What did you find most helpful? Feel free to share in the comments.
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
