Coping With Death Using Memorials Online

Digital memorialPeople are using technology to cope with a loved one’s death. More and more websites are allowing users to build memorials to honor loved ones. Geoffrey Fowler, Wall Street Journal contributor, writes about his own experience using a website to create a memorial. In order to choose an online service there are many factors Fowler states to consider including how simple it is to download and share photos, videos, and post stories online, how long the memorial will stay posted, accessibility, advertisements, and any the other website features. Not everyone will understand the appeal to an online memorial, but the option is useful for those who grew up with an online presence and could use online services to cope with the death of a loved one.
