I was driving behind a taxi and on the boot there is an advertisement for an online obituary and mortuary service. At the same time I remembered when my brother passed away, his son asked one of his close ex student who is good at hacking to delete his account. The idea did not come into my mind at that moment because sadness over rule all imagination and ideas.
Now after reading the advertisement, it crossed into my mind that the idea of deleting his Facebook account might not be the right move. Maybe the account can be used as his mortuary in cyberspace so that friends who were are unaware about his death might come across his FB account and learn that he had passed away. Maybe a JPEG tombstone placed on his profile to let others know that the account holder has left us forever in this world.
Maybe Facebook can go another step by creating a obituary and mortuary in cyberspace so that the dead can be remembered by families and friends until time ends wherever they are. Well, maybe my idea sucks.
