It will examine issues such as ‘digital death’ and the afterlife of digital information, how social networking impacts continuing bonds and whether grieving online helps or hinders the grief process.

• understand the possible impact of social media on the grief process;

• be aware of various social media platforms and how they are being used by bereaved people;

• be informed about the pros and cons of social media as an outlet for bereaved people and a tool for those providing support.
