Hey kay ess, Thank you for you lovely discussion with me last class. I would like to say I love this idea. I have noticed with my family even people that have wills often forget to make changes as circumstances change; that would result in a very different will. I think this would make it so much easier than the traditional process of writing a will.
Hi Morgan, Firstly, thank you for such a though provoking post. As I was reading through you posts and peoples comments I still it continuously fascinating that for such a widespread issue - that effects a huge amount of people - how little has been done to help people deal with death through social media.
Your idea of a "will for thoughts" was exactly what I was trying to get to in my post Social Media and Death (as mentioned in comment below). So thank you.
I too also think it is important to gauge people's emotional reactions to the death of their family or friend. But I definitely that Facebook before posting "your memories" must ask permission to do so and should also consider asking people to fill out a questionnaire of their preferences about how they would like to remember the deceased individual on Facebook. They could even consider having a discussion page linked to the memorialised account so people could discuss this - though like most things on social media this would need to be regulated.
