Culture Watch: Social Media Afterlife

Facebook recently just changed it policy so there can now be a Facebook of the Dead – a policy change which would allow people who die to have their post live one forever. will use your Facebook posts to make your profile and posts available as a story for others to memorialize after your death.

That at not the weirdest idea though. One site,, (as described in this report) will create a virtual avatar and using artificial intelligence will allow you to chat with someone even after they have died.

Our souls may go to Heaven or Hell, but our lives can keep on living virtually forever.
