Is Talking To The Dead On Facebook Unhealthy?

Posted by K R on

Forget trips to the psychic. Increasingly, Facebook has become our conduit for talking to the dearly departed. I first noticed a preponderance of people talking to the dead on Facebook last year around Father's Day, an occasion that brought an outpouring of people having conversations with their dead dads. I'm not talking remembrances here. I'm talking actual direct conversations, like the one Brad Saltzman, COO of L.A. Creamery LLC posted: Happy Father's Day Dad. I know that you can read this and want you to know that even though you are physically not here, I know that you are with us and know what's going on down here. I wish you could see Dawn and Michael's baby ... She is beautiful ... There is not a day that goes by I do not think of you, miss you, wish I could email you or call you and ask myself why did you have to leave us so soon. We will be OK, but life would sure be better if we could see you and touch you and talk with you. Happy Fathers Day. I love you." "He was my best friend," Saltzman told The Huffington Post. "It helps me to reach out to him in this way." Saltzman is hardly alone in using Facebook to communicate with a dead loved one. More via Huffingotn Post - Ann Brenoff.
