10-25-11: e-Thanatology

October 25, 2011 at 8:00 am 1 comment

We’re coming up on Halloween, All Hallows Eve, the time of year when we like to pretend the dead are suddenly among us. Come November 1, of course, we’ll put away the scary masks and once again deal with death however we usually deal with it. Well, offline, anyway.

Online, the dead are still very much among us.

When we pass on, our social media profiles and all the accounts we’ve created remain behind. Here to talk about the ramifications of that are Nathan Jurgenson and P.J. Rey, our monthly social media analysts. Nathan and P.J. are Ph.D. candidates in sociology at the University of Maryland, and they blog at Cyborgology.
