Facebook & Twitter: Honor The Deceased

It’s never a good time when a loved one passes away, even after the funeral you still want to keep their memory alive. Online social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter allow friends and family to post their tributes.

However a report by Ben Parr at Mashable, tells how these tributes sometimes just don’t seem enough. This is where 1000Memories steps up, with a YCombinator-funded start-up, its directed at providing a main location for family and friends to leave their stories, memories and pictures.

1000Memories sets up a memorial split into five sections: Friends & Family, Photos, Stories, Projects and Guestbook. Within these sections memories can be shared about the departed along with favourite photos and stories. Although all the sections are pretty self-explanatory, the “Project” part gives the opportunity to place donations via a WePay system to raise money for any chosen charity or foundation.

To access the pages, users can connect via Facebook and follow the step by step procedure to set up and manage the memorial pages. You are also able to add any audio or video tributes although it is said that a dedicated video section would be nice. Whichever way you look at it, this form of tribute to your loved one can only be a good thing for people to remember and honor their loss.

Tell us, is 1000Memories the sort of application that you would use as a fitting tribute to your departed? Give us your thoughts below. To read more on this check out Mashable
