Teens use the web when mourning loss of friends

myspace.pngThe power of social networking sites such as MySpace goes beyond the grave, as online spaces frequented by a large number of teenagers are used as meeting places even after the untimely death of friends.

Over half of all teenagers who use the Internet use these types of site, so online profile pages become very important even if their owner isn’t around any more.

MySpace helps in this new social phenomenon by only deleting a deceased users’ profile if relatives request it.

A touching technological way to commemorate the death of young friends.
