"On social media there is a context collapse between the living and the dead"
"On social media there is a context collapse between the living and the dead"
“The Oxford Internet Institute predicts that by 2100, the dead will outnumber the living on Facebook.” Accumulation, accumulating… The way that engagement is evaluated by accumulation makes it, in a way, incompatible with loss (and processing loss), right? Celebrities (I.e. popsmoke, tupac) are also exploited for more likes, merch, and money once they pass, signaling a much more literal accumulation-against-lost caused by social media. I really like the bit about the return of acknowledging death as a public event. Another swagged out piece from Real Life
