How social media is changing the way we approach death

This is an excellent article. I have many who tweet updates on palliative patients, and others who have blogged their journey, e.g., Latane who blogged about her husband's journey through dementia. IT all helps us better understand, for it is in telling our stories that we learn.

Death has long been taboo in an American culture that values youth, but an open conversation online can increase our enjoyment of life and understanding of its eventual end.
