Funerary culture in cyberspace. What virtual cemeteries and social media have in common?
The development of intermedia has moved various cultural acts into cyberspace. In the digital world, flattened by the screens of electronic devices, previously known phenomena take a new form, which is forced by the limitations of the medium. Virtual cemeteries are online memorial sites, where users can communicate with each other and present their deceased loved ones, and also create e-tombstones of famous people. Digital cemeteries allow the individualization at the reception. In the article analogies between e-cemeteries and social networking sites are presented. Simultaneously, given the immense popularity of the latter, this work is an attempt to answer the question of whether virtual cemeteries draw from the experience of social media.
