Grief in the Digital Age – how memories are preserved and shared (video)

This documentary by 72U depicts my research results on point. How much people can share and learn about their loved ones through social media, and how much it gives comfort.

“Not all get to see their loved one like this.. I get to see him in YouTube whenever I want.”

“I’ve discovered that my son has crazy dance skills! His passion.. I wasn’t present on those moments, but his friends were.”

“If Tom’s Facebook page ever got deleted I would be devastated, like I’ve lost him all over again.”

“I’m looking at him through the eyes of others, how they saw him.”
