I wanted to loop in a story about selfies at funerals, but it was going to take too long and detracted from where I eventually settled on going with the Terasem tangent. You should read this paper; it’s just a couple pages and it’s very interesting:
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/283318951_Selfies_Selfies_at_Funerals_Mourning_and_Presencing_on_Social_Media_Platforms
“Many commentators on ‘selfies at funerals’  were quick to criticize the character of the people involved for being  narcissistic and lacking proper respect and tended to focus on the problematic  character of ‘today’s youth’; an age-old conundrum. However, for others who attempted to understand rather than dismiss this practice, there was recognition that social media such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook are  integrated into many people’s everyday lives and are thus ‘natural’ avenues for personal expressions of grief. Given the waning of institutionalized mourning rituals in contemporary western societies (Margry  & Sánchez-Carretero 2011; Wouters 2002), disentangling the vitriol from the vernacular in expressions of digital culture are needed if we are to adequately comprehend how funeral rituals are being remediated.”
