This fifth blog post in 2019 continues our mission of raising social media afterlife awareness. As Profile Peace strives to enable meaningful dialogue about laying a loved one's online profiles to rest, we would like to share a very helpful and engaging conversation that aired recently on National Public Radio (NPR) titled “What Should We Do With The Online Profiles Of The Deceased?”
This episode aired on the May 3rd, 2019 edition of Science Friday, a weekly call-in talk show that broadcasts each Friday on public radio stations, distributed by WNYC Studios. We would also like to give special thanks to the thoughtful participants for their insightful contributions, including host and executive producer Ira Flatow (@iraflatow), associate producer Katie Feather (@sciencewritr), Dr. Carl Ohman (@CJ_Ohman), lead study author and doctoral candidate at the Oxford Internet Institute, and Dr. Candi Cann (@CandiCann), associate professor at Baylor University and author of the book Virtual Afterlives: Grieving the Dead in the Twenty-First Century.
Our community welcomes you to join in on the conversation, and share articles and resources related to social media and funeral planning. The Profile Peace mission is to help online profiles of the deceased rest in peace, and our purpose is to provide meaningful profile memorialization and closure to families.
