A handful of years ago a close friend of mine passed away from a heart attack. I had never thought about what happens to a person’s online presence after you die prior to that. But to this day I enjoy seeing him in my friends list, getting notifications about his birthday, or seeing him pop up on ‘this day in history’ type suggestions. I also enjoy interacting with mutual friends, friends of his that I’d never met, and seeing pictures of him I’ve never seen before. It’s been a positive experience, especially since he has no grave to visit and I’d be pretty unlikely to visit anyway since I live far from anywhere he’d be likely…
