The Digital Death Survey 2014
“55% of those interviewed had viewed a social media account of a friend or family member after they had died” – Digital Death Survey 2014
In 2014 DeadSocial ran a survey called the ‘Digital Death Survey 2014’. This allowed us to attain a better understanding of attitudes towards death and bereavement in today’s connected world. The responses can be found below in the ‘Digital Death Report 2014’. This data was collected (online only) and during the first week of it’s collection updated an interactive installation that lived and breathed during the ‘You Only Die Once Art Exhibition’. The installation was called ‘The LivInfographic’ (the living infographic) and used near-real time data to update it over the week. More information about the LivInfographic installation can be found here
The Digital Death Survey 2015
The Digital Death Survey will reexamine society’s relationship with death in today’s connected World 2015. The subsequent ‘Digital Death Report’ will be published the months that follow. The data from both years will be analyzed at the Digital Legacy Conference 2015.
