The social networking profile of a person who has died, creating an unsentimental public self-memorial, a frozen and uncensored snapshot of the person they wanted to show to the world.

Online ghosts are commonly used as public memorials by friends and family, posting messages to the deceased for weeks, sometimes even months or years after their death.

Also, a song by Tom Smith, popular Filksinger, winner of the Pegasus Award
I visited Steven's online ghost today and left a comment on his wall. It was good to see him again. I like to read what everyone has written. It's like a support group for those of us he left behind.
