And William the Coroner was in that group.
It happens with Facebook (and the other social medias that do not require active participation, I am certain); you input information such as birthdays, likes, etc. and it continues forward without end absent input from the original user or their designee. It's the electronic version of Newton's First Law of Motion:
Every status in a social media application tends to remain in that status unless an external edit is applied to it.It's jarring; not that we forget about those we've lost, but that the pain of their loss becomes secondary to the immediate things in life over time. Little things like a birthday reminder for someone that will never grow older or an invitation to invite someone who has retired, permanently, into your professional circle serve as reminders that even though we are transient creatures, the internet that Al Gore created moves ever onward.
In a way, it's a perpetual motion device, powered by electrons and keyboards.
That is all.
