In today’s society, the media is constantly promoting social networking websites and the glory of having such technology. If you are watching entertainment news, or national news, the media references social networking to enhance their stories creditability. Whether someone wrote on their blog, tweeted, or posted a status update on Facebook, the media grabs ahold of the information and uses it as a source. In a world driven by the latest technology, it becomes only natural for people to question what will happen to their blog or webpage when they pass away.
