|Description||Message syndication for the dead|
DeadSocial is a platform that enables people to create a calendar of secret, timed messages. These messages are distributed on DeadSocial, Facebook and Twitter simultaneously after the user passes away.
Messages are entered into a users private calendar. The messages are then sent out via RSS to the users social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) after the user passes away. This allows for communication and creativity to occur in death and those final messages to be told.
DeadSocial explores the notion of digital legacy and how we can extend our digital life through technology and the social web. This is especially apparent once a user connects their DeadSocial account to Facebook and their ‘Facebook Timeline’ continues even after death.
PROBLEM ‘3.24% of all Facebook profiles are of the deceased’. This number is naturally increasing with each passing moment. Internet users are increasingly turning to social media channels to publically display their feelings and emotions.
DeadSoci.al has attained support from UKTI’s Digital Mission to SXSW Conference. The platform will launch (in Alpha) on the 10th March 2012 whilst at the conference
